                            In the last several months, we at Plough have added heaps of new books to the library’s collection. As we now begin this slow turn to Fall—dusk arriving earlier each day, the summer heat waning, leaves beginning to drop, even the light changing—the memory and hope of coziness pervade. For me, this image of coziness always includes a book, so here you will find comprehensive and subject-specific lists of our collection’s new titles, ready to be checked out for your Fall research and reading.

These first lists of new books, linked below, include items that were acquired and added to Plough Library’s collection between April and June 2021. Newspapers, journals, and other serials are not included. 

In the coming weeks, I’ll publish the titles added in July through September, so be sure to check back, and, as always, please reach out if you have any questions or would like more information:

Finally, in honor of Fall, Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Autumn Day,” pictured top right.
