The Driver

The Library Club is proud to announce that our autographed copy of Alex Roy’s The driver : my dangerous pursuit of speed and truth in the outlaw racing world (now that’s how you write a book title!) is now held in the Stony Book University’s Special Collection department. As far as we know we are the first university to have the book, none the less signed and held in the perfect atmospheric condition to preserve it for eternity.

As a side note, I have to say it is a great read. Not too many books have been written on this subculture so if you are in the position to select books for your library do pick this book up to fill that gap in American History. The book is a real page turner. It’s hard to think of a cooler book with this much street cred. If you or someone you know likes to read exciting tales about overcoming incredible odds, get it. Know someone that thinks reading is dumb? This will convert them. While you’re at it check out Alex’s blog and The Moth.

Special thanks to Lynn Toscano, Jason Torre, and of course Alex Roy for his support for libraries.

Content with Content DM

The Library Club is entering a pilot project with SBU’s Special Collections department. The idea is to use Content DM to document SBU Clubs. This is pretty exciting and we have uploaded a good portion of our content on there already.  So do check it out.  And while you’re there, check out some of the other collection!

Special shout out to Jason Torre for the support and training!
