It may be cliche for librarians to talk about their favorite books, but I don't remember having a favorite until I read J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye as a junior in high school. Like a lot of teenagers, I related to Holden's frustration of being caught between childhood and adulthood - wishing for innocent eyes like those of his sister Phoebe but having experienced too much of the corrupt adult world to ignore. It's this state of inbetween - of adolescence - that attracts so many teens to this book.
J.D. Salinger died last week at the age of 91, nearly 60 years after The Catcher in the Rye was first published. If you haven't read it, I encourage you to pick up a copy. If you have read it, try picking up one of his other books or checking out some of the copies we have in Special Collections on the 3rd floor of King.

Here at Miami, we're connected to dozens of academic and public libraries throughout the state of Ohio which means if you're looking for a book that's not on the shelf and another library in the state has an available copy, you can request to borrow theirs and pick it up at any of Miami's libraries.
Watch the video to learn how:

Note that it takes 2-4 business days for your item to arrive and checkout is generally for 3 weeks.
