    ABOUT OUR CLUB

    For the ❤ of Books is a joint venture of the LBCC Library and the LBCC Healthy Vikings Initiative.

    We are passionate about the well-rounded student. We care about the mental health and the social connections in student's lives. Our book club provides students with a safe environment to discuss books and learn from one another.

    Why is reading important?

    Studies have shown that reading:

    • improves mental health
    • reduces stress 
    • helps you sleep better
    • introduces you to different places, people, ideas, life and much more
    • increases reading comprehension, critical thinking and vocabulary

    Why join a book club?

    • human connection improves mental health
    • discussing books with others exposes you to various perspectives and individual experiences
    • provides self-motivation to have deeper conversations with communities in a safe space
    • promotes collaboration, cooperation, self-confidence and leadership skills

     If you have any questions, please email, Librarian Shamika at ssimpson@lbcc.edu or Sergio Grimaldi at sgrimaldi@lbcc.edu.
