Enjoy Some Summer Reading with CPL@Case-KSL
Try some popular magazines, books, and audio books from the Cleveland Public Library browsing collection—right here in KSL! CPL partners with KSL to bring a convenient site collection of popular reading materials to everyone who enrolled at Case.
With spring semester over, there's more time for biographies of Jimmy Stewart, Condoleeza Rice, Peter Jennings, Ingrid Bergman, or the new autobiography by Eric Clapton.
Try some fiction with Alan Alda's Things I learned While Talking to Myself, or walk in a Renoir-like world with Vreeland's Luncheon of the Boating Party. Try current affairs or politics with Bill Bradley's The New American Story, or Ung's The Fall of the House of Bush.
From heart healthy books to exercise, from Alan Greenspan to Suze Orman, check out these books, audio books & more at KSL!
Use your Greater Access or CPL card to borrow these books at the CPL self-checkout machine (around the corner from the CPL@Case-KSL collection) on the main floor. Or, if you are enrolled or employed at Case, KSL staff can enter you in CPL's system and issue you a CPL card to use. KSL staff can also logon to the CPL system and check out materials to you.
