Introducing the Barrett ‘Little Library’

As part of its Future of Print initiative, ASU Library has joined forces with students from Barrett, The Honors College to identify and share books for students to read and explore. These books, selected by the Barrett Student Ambassadors, make up some of their favorite and most inspiring reads.

Students are invited to stop by the bookshelf in the Burning B Café to participate in a “take one, leave one” reading experience – a practice growing in popularity worldwide as a way to encourage reading and foster a sense of community.

In order to participate, students can take a book that interest them – yes, to keep – and leave a book that they would like to share with others. The Barrett Ambassadors have chosen to theme this display after the beloved Harry Potter series and are eager to see how their classmates will respond.
