BRN Virtual Library Display: Book Madness

Here is the "virtual" version of what we currently have on display at the UW-BC Library this month! And remember, everything on display is available for checkout to students, staff, and community members.

March Madness = BOOK Madness!  Only ONE book will win it all...

During the month of March, students will vote for their favorite books by visiting the "book bracket" in the library. The books with the most votes will win that week's matchup and move on to the next week.  Which one will win it all?

Students who vote for winning books will be entered into weekly drawings for PRIZES!  We'll also have a GRAND PRIZE drawing at the end of the month.
