Leisure Time, Leisure Reading

by PSL Law Library 30. June 2011 15:18

 

Summer is a popular time to travel and for those of you who haven’t made plans yet it’s not too late.  Head to the Law Library and take a look at some of the magazines in the Leisure Reading Collection.  This collection is located on the short bookcases between the Arizona and General Collections.  Take a look at the latest edition of Travel & Leisure magazine for suggestions on places to visit.  Maybe you don’t have the time to travel outside of the state?  Peruse the pages of Phoenix magazine or Arizona Highways.  You’ll find ideas for weekend getaways and day trips.  If nothing catches your eye try looking at past issues located in the general collection. 

The Leisure Reading Collection isn’t just for travel buffs.  The Law Library has magazines that cover a variety of topics including sports, entertainment, financial news, and current events.  So when the semester begins and you want to take a break from it all for just 15 minutes, grab a magazine and relax.
