Even as our TxWes community struggles during this COVID-19 situation, the West Library’s mission is focused on providing you and our students with high quality academic resources. As a part of that mission, we have made the decision to switch our academic video streaming service from Kanopy to Academic Video Online - hereby referred to as AVON. AVON is run and maintained by Alexander Street Press, which is a ProQuest company. By subscribing with AVON, we will be able to continue providing you with a streaming service at about half of the yearly cost of Kanopy. All AVON

People may recognize The Book Thief before they know what TxWes Reads is. But this year they are the same!
The West library sponsors a campus-wide read every year called TxWes Reads. It's like a year-long book club. You are encouraged to read the book then come to one or all of the programs designed around discussing the book's ideas and themes. This year’s book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
