Here at Kirkwood Library Services we like to post from time to time a collection of books recently added to our collection on a particular topic.  In honor of National Information Literacy Awareness Month we have books on information literacy. Look for one the next time you stop by the library. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
