Get started with your summer reading – and listening and watching – at Belk Library!

Published by

We’ve added 50 new titles to the Belk Library Kindles, bringing our total up to 176 books. That’s one of the great things about e-book readers – all those books, and it still only weighs about 10 ounces. Some highlights from this new collection include:

  • Twelve of the hardcover fiction and five of the hardcover nonfiction bestsellers from the New York Times bestsellers list.
  • A mix of genres: romances, mysteries, thrillers, humor, fantasy.
  • And some great beach books! Two new beach romances – Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer and Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews. And for nonfiction, we have David McCullough’s new biography of the Wright brothers, who made history right on our very own NC beach!
  • Why not get ready for Fall Convocation by reading Dr. Martin Luther King’s Why We Can’t Wait. And we have several of the previous common readings too, if you missed them.

Meet our new Systems Librarian

Published by

This summer we welcomed Jerry Waller as a new member of the Belk Library staff. As our Systems Librarian, Jerry will administer the front and back ends of the online catalog system, provide systems and statistical analysis, and generally strive to make the patron experience the best it can be.

Jerry comes to us from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he served as Technical Support Analyst in the Media Resources Center. Prior to that position, Jerry’s professional experiences included books specialist for Duke University Press, associate programmer analyst for Pharmaceutical Product Development, Inc., user interface design intern at the SAS institute, and a variety of managerial positions with Borders Books, Music & Café. He has a Master of Science in Information Science degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and a BA in English from Concord University.

While Jerry never had the opportunity to study abroad, he has always had wanderlust and has been fortunate to travel the country and the world, including a recent three week trip to Seoul, South Korea. He’s already loving Elon, and is very excited to be in an environment that cares as much as he does about global and multicultural experiences.jwaller
