As we push into the last part of the semester, we’ve gathered together some new books about student life. We’ve included books that cover situations you might encounter as a student and books that may be of use to you in both school and as you start on your post-Kirkwood life. There are more books on these topics available in the circulating collection at the same call numbers. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
