New Popular Reading Collection

We are proud to announce the arrival of our new Popular Reading Collection!!!

This collection of 300 popular books consists of a wide variety of genres that range from fantasy, SciFi, and suspense to biographies, YA, and romance to name a few.  This is a rotating collection and new books will be added over time so you’ll want to check back!  The Popular Reading collection is only available to the Willamette Community, and books checkout for 30 days with no renewals. All titles from this collection are included in the library’s catalog.

While we do have some fiction and non-scholarly books mixed into our general collection, the bulk of what we have is scholarly to support research needs.  The addition of this new collection is part of the library’s goal of encouraging life-long reading for our library users.

This collection is located by the reference desk on the first floor of the library.  Feel free to ask questions about our new Popular Reading Collection at the reference or circulation desk.
