Do You Enjoy Reading?
… literature?
… history?
… biography?

NICC Libraries subscribe to the publication, Slightly Foxed, which is available in print at the Peosta campus library.  This magazine introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal.  Good-humored, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary review.  As an added bonus, all College students, faculty, and staff, have access to a rich and varied collection of podcast episodes.
