Common Read 2018

This program supports CC”s academic mission by highlighting distinctive collections that also reflect the rhyme of the block plan.

Tutt Library partnered with the College's Common Read Program in 2018. The Common Read Program, (https://www.coloradocollege.edu/other/fye/common-reading/), creates an intellectual model for incoming students to engage in discussion building on the college's academic values.

For 2018-2019, the Common Reading is Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley. For the display on the first floor, a librarian selected books from the collection that tie into themes from the novel. The materials cover a wide array of topics covering many subject areas of the main collection. Circulation staff processed the books for the display. This display was registered with a national initiative Frankenreads (https://frankenreads.org/).

The Special Collections Archivist selected items from that collection focusing on Frankenstein. Including an art book and copies of pages of other items. She will also host instruction for a class offered by a professor in the English Department that will work with materials in Special Collections during the fall of 2018.
