Staff found a great range of selections, from classics by Emily Dickinson to non-fiction books related to environmental issues. These books are now located in our display case for checkout. See our Staff picks bibliography for a full listing of the selected titles.

Each April, Dominican College celebrates Earth Week to raise awareness of the environmental challenges impacting our planet. Earth Week runs April 17th – 23rd, 2017.
