Stories from the stacks...September. It's Tolkien Week!

 It's Tolkien week! 
 "Tolkien Week is observed as the calendar week containing September 22, which is always observed as Hobbit Day"
To celebrate, go barefoot in honour of hobbits, who don't wear shoes, find some books about Tolkien and Middle Earth or start reading Christopher Tolkien's 12-volume series The History of Middle-Earth in which he analyses the unpublished manuscripts of his father J. R. R. Tolkien. 
Start with The book of lost tales, Volume 1.
You can request these books from  the Stack collection. 
While searching the Library catalogue you may have encountered a book listed as available at Sutherland Stack Fiction.

These are a collection of books which are housed behind the scenes at Sutherland Library - items that the Library definitely wants to keep, but for some reason (e.g. older condition, or not in as high demand) the open shelf is not the right place for them.
