Answer

The Popular Reading Collection contains current bestsellers and other popular titles, both fiction and non-fiction. These books are leased so as new books arrive, older titles are removed. We keep this collection on the main floor of Bender Library across from the Borrowing Desk.

The books are selected by our Acquisitions staff who monitor the frequency of use of each book to determine whether it would be worthwhile adding it to our primary collection.
