Welcome back to another edition of weekly tips and tricks. This week we are going to go over how to place a hold on a book. This process allows you to “reserve” an item that is currently checked out so you’ll be the next in line to borrow it.
To place a hold on a book that is already checked out you can either come to the circulation desk in person or call us at (845) 848-7505.
Simply present the clerk with your Dominican College ID or if you are calling over the phone your name and the title of the book you wish to place a hold on and one of our clerks will put it in the system for you. When the book has been brought back you will be notified by phone that it is available for pick up.

May has been recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949. Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. One in every five adults in the United States will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In an effort to bring this issue to light and remove stigma, Mental Health Awareness month seeks to educate the public about mental illness and related issues, in addition to promoting wellness concepts and support.
We have compiled a Bibliography for Mental Health Awareness which features a collection of books related to mental health and wellness related topics.

Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance
By Barack Obama
DC Call Number – 973.04 Ob1d
The former President of the United States, US Senator and activist writes about his life as a black American whose father was a black African and his mother a white American. His story begins in New York, where he learns that his father has been killed in a car accident. The sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and lastly reconciles his divided inheritance.
