Leisure reading

Leisure Reading Collection

Leisure Reading Collections are available in all of the Library & Learning Centre Libraries. The idea behind these collections is to help you take a break from the rigours of study.  Please note the Main Library has recently moved the Leisure Reading Collection to the atrium area, on the ground floor of the Main Library (opposite the Library Cafe). While the libraries at DJCAD, Robertson Trust Medical Library and the Fife Campus Library have designated areas within the library for the collections. If you are unsure as to where they are, just ask at the desk.Several genres are covered, but we welcome suggestions.  Send any ideas to with "Leisure Books" in the "Subject box".  All books can be borrowed in the usual manner.                                                   

Genres included in the collection are -

Fiction                  Bestsellers, Crime, Fantasy, Graphic Novels, Fiction in translation, Historical Novels, Mystery, & Science Fiction                

Non Fiction         Biographies, Cookery, Health (incl Mindfulness & Yoga), History, Music, Sport & Travel
