Academic Libraries: citation managers, journals, and… summer reading programs? Frontline staff at Wilson Library, the largest of 12 libraries on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, decided to take their love of reading to the next level by creating a summer reading program to engage with students and staff. Being on the frontlines of the library, we saw both the need for creating welcoming interactions, as well as promoting reading outside the contexts of required class material. This program has allowed us to reach out to the campus community and encourage them to utilize our collections and services. We will share what we have learned throughout the growth of our summer reading program, as well as inspire you to create your own program at your institution or library.
