Leisure Reading

Take a break from studying and read a book!

Reading for fun at STL

Did you know the college library doesn't just have academic tomes but also books you might want to read for pleasure and relaxation? 

We’ve got bestselling fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and short stories. In addition, we’ve got a large collection of classics in literature and history.  So if you have a little down time over the weekend or during semester breaks, please explore these pages or come browse the stacks.
