Have you read the latest Stephen King novel? Are you excited for the Gone Girl movie and want to re-read the Gillian Flynn best seller? Now you can check out these popular titles and more in Langsam Library courtesy of the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County.

Located on the 4th floor of Langsam, the Popular Reading Collection contains more than 1,500 books including best sellers, recently published fiction, graphic novels, popular nonfiction, foreign language titles and more. The collection will be changed out three times per year, so check back frequently for new titles.

The books in the collection are available for checkout by UC students, faculty and staff using a valid UC I.D.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Public Library to bring this collection to UC Libraries," said Pam Bach, reference librarian in Langsam Library and coordinator of the collection. "As students started back to class this week they have discovered this collection and have already begun to check out books. It is proving to be quite popular."
