In response to requests by members of the SPU community for “something good to read,” the Library created the Popular Fiction Collection in March 2008. From a humble and tentative beginning of 12 books, the collection now contains over 80 titles and has proven to be popular.
You can find these works of recent best-selling fiction on a display table by the Library’s front entrance as well as in the Reading Room. What you see is what you get! The books are not listed in the Library’s catalog and do not go out through Summit, making this informal browsing collection a delightful surprise to those who visit our building. All it takes is your SPU ID or alumni card to check out one of these gems and lose yourself in a good book.
Check out the Popular Fiction Subject Guide to see what titles are currently part of the collection.
