Popular Reading Books

Yes, we do have "fun" books!

The Popular Reading collection, located in the Lounge on the 1st floor, consists of fiction and non-fiction books from the New York Times Bestseller list.

Borrowing Policies for the Popular Reading collection

Because these are high demand non-academic books, the borrowing term is shorter than for our regular collection. Each book in the Popular Reading collection checks out for 2 weeks with one renewal for all user types. See additional policies.
