Pure Michigan

Pure Michigan logoWe’ve all seen the Pure Michigan commercials on TV. If you’re like us, those ads make you want to get in a car and drive to the beach, a winery, the Bridge, a Tigers baseball game,  the Falls, “outa town!”  Before you hit the open road, consider combining that Pure Michigan road trip with a Michigan-themed book.  GRCC’s Library has a great selection of Michigan Notable Books – some fiction, non-fiction, and even a few children’s books.  Check them out! Pure Michigan!

New Book Shelf… Kind of

GRCC’s Library does not have a New Book Shelf like you might expect to see at a public library.  Instead, librarian Lori DeBie provides us with regularly updated lists of new materials through RaiderSearch Catalog Featured Lists.  Updated at the end of each month, there is a featured list for PRINT books, E-books, and also for New Streaming Video.  Take a look at the February 2017 lists now.  When you want to see the newest titles added to GRCC’s collections, go to RaiderSearch Catalog and select [Featured Lists] on the blue toolbar.RaiderSearch Featured Lists
