New Books!

If you’re like me, you’re missing the experience of sipping a free library coffee while browsing through the LLC’s New Books shelves. Go grab your own beverage and – ta-da – take a look at the June New e-Books list!

Click the titles that interest you. Watch for any [Note] field to see how many readers can use the book at once (Single user license, etc.) If there’s no license-related note, that means the GRCC community has unlimited simultaneous access to the title. Just logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number and start reading.
