Popular Fiction for Your Travels?

Are you on your way out of town for Spring Break? Going somewhere warm and sandy? Traveling by plane, train, or automobile? What better to do during those long travel hours and on warm sandy beaches than indulging in a little recreational reading? Ames Library has a whole collection of titles that are a welcome break from all that studying you’ve been doing!


The Ames Library’s Popular Reading Collection consists of more than 400 recently published books covering a wide range of interests and topics.

If you’re looking for a way to escape from your daily routine, stop by and browse the collection.  You’ll find mysteries, suspense, romance, science fiction, and fantasy novels, as well as non-fiction books covering current issues and people in the news.

To see a list of current titles, click here.

The collection is located on the entry level – east of the Circulation Desk.  Books are available to faculty, students and staff and can be checked out for three weeks; there is no limit to the number of books you can check out and the items can be renewed.

Items are added to the collection on a regular basis, so be sure to stop by often and see what’s new.
