After completion of the experience, sponsoring department submit the names of students who should receive credit toward their graduation requirements.

CURA in the Library Book Club is a newly created weekly experience (5 to 8 sessions) conceived as a space for students to be contemplative in action, that is, to reflect on their day-to-day life in conversation with a set of chosen books and with each other. The idea is to invite students to pause to consider the world around them and their place within it. 

The experience is guided by the Saint Louis University Madrid Library staff, and moderated by the student participants themselves. Space is limited to 10 participants.
