The Leisure Collection

Are you looking for something fun to read? Are you looking for something other than text books and journal articles? Would you like to curl up with a good book and read for pleasure? If so, look no further than the Leisure Collection in the Emmanuel College library. The Leisure Collection features a wide range of titles for all interests including mysteries, romance, thrillers, science fiction, sports, and many more.

To search the catalog for a specific title or author, head to the library site and look for the Library Resources heading in the middle of the page. There you will find a search window for our library catalog. If you would like to search by Title or Author click on the appropriate tab.


–          When searching by title, omit the initial article from your   search: “Wind-Up Bird Chronicle” instead of “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.”

–          When searching by Author, make sure to enter the author’s surname first: ‘Leonard, Elmore’ instead of Elmore Leonard.

Here are a few new editions to the Leisure Collection from several different genres:
