Ellis Library isn’t just for study and work anymore. Because the Mizzou community needs leisure reading too, the MU Libraries in partnership with the Daniel Boone Regional Library (DBRL) are proud to announce the debut of a Popular Reading Collection in the Lounge, which is located on the first floor of Ellis Library near the north entrance (access from Lowry Mall).
The Popular Reading Collection consists of books, magazines, comic books and some graphic novels that have been donated from DBRL. Library users may read these materials in the library or take them home. When they are finished, materials should be returned to Ellis Library, the Columbia Public Library, or dropped in any MU Libraries or DBRL bookdrop. The collection will be restocked once a month.
“We have heard from students over the years that they would like access to popular reading materials in Ellis Library. We are so grateful to the Daniel Boone Regional Library for collaborating on this project to make this material available to our users,” said Deb Ward.
The items in this collection are not part of the regular MU Libraries or DBRL circulating collection. You will not be able to search these books in either library’s catalog, and you do not need to check them out.
