New Popular Books Join the Collection: Autobiographies, Anti-Racist Readings, and NYT Best Sellers

It’s that time of year when we all need a break – we’re stressed with work, the weather is awful (seriously, how much more snow can we take?), and there are no exciting vacations or holidays to look forward to on the calendar. 

Escape from the To-Do list and give yourself a break by diving into a leisure book! We just added over 40 popular reading books to our collection, and highlights include autobiographies from pop culture icons, anti-racist and feminist readings, and New York Times best-selling novels.   

Check out a sample of titles below or browse the complete list on our website. Then stop into the library to borrow a book. Our leisure book collection is on the 1st floor.
