  • Generate informed discussion of key issues by promoting the reading and discussion of books on the broad themes in the book.
  • Focus on academic disciplines at SBCC which provide us with a broader understanding of the issues raised in the book.
  • Create further campus appreciation of the library and the role it plays in education and research.
  • Encourage the exchange of ideas in our community.
