Meaningful reads

Serin Anderson, Collections and Budget Librarian, began Meaningful reads in 2019. In its inception, Meaningful reads was a recommended book series that commemorated the promotion and tenure of faculty at the University of Washington Tacoma. Newly promoted or tenured faculty were invited to share a book that was meaningful to them in either their career or life. These submissions were shared on the UWT Library blog and posted throughout the year.

Johanna and Sierra expanded the program to include all members of the UW Tacoma community. Meaningful reads became known as Campus Meaningful Reads with faculty, staff, and students all invited to contribute. This is the current iteration of this initiative.
