Annual library event in conjunction with National Library Week. Click on the tabs below to learn more about this project.
The 5 Favorite Books Project

Since 2008, Point Loma Nazarene University's Ryan Library has celebrated National Library Week (April 7 - 13, 2019) by asking members of the PLNU community: 

"What are your Five Favorite Books?" 

  • An individual poster is created for each participant.

  • The posters are displayed three ways:

    • in hard copy in the library

    • as a digital display in the circulation area

    • online (on this web page)

  • The display is typically up throughout the month of April. 

  • Participants are welcome to participate every year if they choose.

  • There are no criteria as to what type of book can be submitted (fiction, non-fiction, scholarly, children's, etc.).

  • Any member of the PLNU community (student, faculty, staff) is welcome to participate.

  • The poster is yours to keep after the display ends.

Interested in participating?

Simply fill out this form by Friday, March 29, 2019.
