Humanities Reading Room
The Humanities Reading Room was founded through a generous gift to the University Library from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. Almost 2700 books make up the collection in the room. Books may not be checked out, but are intended to be enjoyed while visiting the room. The room is located in McDonald 209 on the second floor of the library.
With an emphasis on poetry, the collection focuses on the beauty and wonder found in works by such authors as Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, T.S. Eliot, Adrienne Rich, Mary Oliver, William Carlos Williams, Walt Whitman, Billy Collins, and many others. Treasures such as the complete works of Wendell Berry and offerings by local and small presses also are included.
