The Kinnard Leisure Reading Collection

Kinnard Leisure Reading Collection

What is the Collection?

Dr. William J. Kinnard, Jr., a former professor, dean of the School of Pharmacy, and acting president of the University, believed faculty, staff, and students needed a way to relax their brains. This led him to establish the Kinnard Leisure Reading Collection in 2003. Thanks to the generous ongoing donation of Dr. and Mrs. Kinnard, the HSHSL provides a variety of popular magazines and a small selection of circulating fiction and non-fiction books. The collection is located on the first floor of the Library, in the bookcases under the staircase.
