Books just for you
Stop by the Cedar Rapids or Iowa City campus libraries to check out a book or two (or more) from our Popular Books collections or New Books on display. Here you’ll find current fiction, nonfiction, and memoirs in many different genres.
You’re sure to find something to intrigue or inspire, make you laugh or cry, or just take you out of the Iowa winter for a moment. If you’re not sure what to read, ask a librarian for a recommendation.
