This archived article was written by: Lori Brassaw

The College of Eastern Utah Library recently received additional books that address information regarding the current U.S. presidential candidates. Listed in alphabetical order for each candidate are the following new library additions: McCain: The Myth of a Maverick by Matt Welch, Character is Destiny by John McCain & Mark Salter, The Seventeen Traditions by Ralph Nader and finally, by Barack Obama, “The Audacity of Hope.” These are our most recent purchases on the major candidates. Please keep in mind we also have the following books and audio CD’s available for checkout: Living History by Hillary Rodham Clinton, John McCain’s Faith of My Fathers, and Barack Obama’s Family Memoir and Dreams from My Father’s: A Story of Race and Inheritance.
The library also has information in books and audio format for candidates no longer in the running for the 2008 presidency. Some readers may be interested to learn more about former candidates, their life story and political views. The titles of just a few of these books are an autobiography of Mike Huckabee titled, “Character Makes A Difference: Where I’m From, Where I’ve Been and What I Believe and the library also has available, A Mormon in the White House?: 10 things every American should know about Mitt Romney by Hugh Hewitt.
The recent acquisitions as well as not so recent acquisitions on the candidates and former candidates are now on display at the front of the library.
