Summer Reading

Well, it’s officially the last week of class, and that means that most students will be filing out of campus as they get done with their finals next week.  If you have ever been a student who stayed over break, you know that you need to look a little harder to find fun things to do now that everyone’s gone.  So, I decided to do a little digging for you, and will be sharing all the best places to look for book-related events to get involved with this summer at Purdue!

Your first stop should definitely be the West Lafayette Public Library.

The library is located right in Chauncey and aside from being a great place to find books they also host a lot of great events such as the Adult Summer Reading Program and free public lectures.

Another great place to find events happening this summer is the Lafayette Barnes and Noble.


Barnes and Noble hosts a ton of great author readings and book signings, as well as storytime for kids every Thursday, and a lot of other cool book-related events.

Honorary Mentions:

While Von’s Bookshop doesn’t have a ton of stuff, make sure to check their facebook to see if they have one of their occasional author events.

If you are interested in science fiction or fantasy another great place to check out is Main Street Books, formerly Robots and Rogues, in downtown Lafayette.
