Summer Reading Suggestions from MNU Professors

The Mabee Library has developed a list of professor-recommended summer reading suggestions in the hope that current and future students will find this of interest, and will be drawn to read a few of these important books. We also hope that these reading suggestions will help you learn more about our outstanding MNU faculty members. You will notice that some of the recommendations are "just for fun," while others may speak to your faith journey as a disciple of Christ, or encourage scholarly interests.

Library Enters World of Texting


Mabee Library has unveiled a new service that enhances our ability to communicate with MNU faculty, staff, and students. Now, in addition to supporting live computer chat through our library webpages, we also accept text messages. Library users may text 913-440-4447913-440-4447 to ask questions; we will reply by text message. Remember, texting and driving don’t mix, but texting and studying (as long as you text the library!) now go hand in hand.
