Leisure Reading

Leisure Reading List

The Leisure Reading Collection contains books that can be checked out primarily for entertainment, whether you are looking for something to take along on vacation or simply for a break from course readings.

Our collection reflects a wide variety of reading interests, designed to meet the various tastes of our students, staff, faculty, and community. The focus of the collection is fiction best-sellers and popular fiction genres, such as mystery, science fiction, fantasy, romance, adventure, historical fiction and young adult literature. The collection also includes non-fiction best-selling books--in such areas as history, business and money management, self-improvement, politics, social affairs, and biography.
