Short & Snappy

Sometimes you want just a little something! In the Library’s vast collections, there are plenty of small items: poems, essays, short stories, articles, short films and other miniature works of art. Take a minute to sample some of these pint-sized pleasures.

Or find something new to occupy just a little of your time—the score for Chopin’s Minute Waltz, two-minute bridge tips, five-minute pasta sauce recipes, or a ten-minute exercise program.

Read about some of the wonderful things that naturally come in small packages. Find a book on Tiger Woods’ short game and a biography of Muggsy Bogues, the 5'3" NBA player, among the suggested works here.

You may also want to look at the list we put together for our Summer Reading Club in 2001, Great Short Books for Busy Readers.
