The Popular Reading and Audiobooks collections are intended to provide current popular fiction and current general interest non-fiction in print and audio formats, along with classic literature in audio format, for personal enjoyment and intellectual enrichment.
Emphasis is placed on new or recently published books and audiobooks.
Older books may occasionally be purchased or moved into the collection if a recent occurrence makes them of current interest (ex. film/tv adaptation, anniversary, re-issue, etc).
Audiobooks of "classic" titles, the original publication date of which may be anywhere from ancient times to the twentieth century, are actively purchased.
