Hot Hot Heat: Readings for an Air-Conditioned Existence

As the Maryland summer starts to heat up, we'll all start to look towards more indoor activities. With that in mind, we’ll continue with the non-required reading (and viewing, and listening) suggestions to consider when you're tired of reality TV reruns and you've seen all the Law & Order episodes ever filmed.

All of these are available at the Loyola/Notre Dame Library, and may also be available at the Enoch Pratt Free Library (don't forget, you can have them delivered to the branch nearest you!) or your local public library system.

Click through to see if it’s currently available at LNDL.
