Popular Reading Collection

The Popular Reading Collection debuted in November 2011. It is continually updated with the latest "just for fun" books and CD audiobooks in a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres.You can search for titles in the Classic Catalog, or browse the collection on the first floor of McKeldin Library (in the new reading area, which you will see in front of you as you enter the library).

Books and audiobooks can be borrowed for three weeks at a time, and can be renewed one time for an additional three weeks.

Currently we have over 400 items in the collection, with new items arriving monthly. If you'd like to request a new release, email
