Popular Fiction and Non-Fiction Collection: Home

The Popular Fiction and Non-Fiction Collection is a changing collection of current best-sellers, popular fiction and non-fiction books that span authors, genres, and years.

You can use this LibGuide to see our McNaughton collection in full, organized by year and month. If you're looking for something in particular and can't seem to find it, please request it through Inter-Library Loan.

New books are added every month, so check back often!

Where are the books?
The collection is located on the main floor of the Lucy Scribner Library near the DVD and CD collections. These books may be checked out for two weeks, with two possible renewals, and are shelved by author's last name. Please visit us and browse the collection at your leisure!
