Leisure reading collection

Come and browse our standalone Leisure Reading Collection on Level 4. Situated alongside the comfortable seating area, you can choose from a broad range of genres including contemporary fiction, graphic novel, biography, crime, fantasy, horror and science fiction.

Four items at a time can be borrowed for a period of four weeks. We don't want to interrupt your reading enjoyment so these books cannot be recalled by other users. However, reservations may be placed.

If English is your second language and you’d like to improve your English language skills by reading for pleasure, try our Graded Readers which are available in graded language stages and stocked at 428.64. You might also like to take a look at our stock of Manga graphic novels
