Leisure Reading: Welcome

Finding Leisure Reading Books


When it's time to take a break from studying and read a book for fun, check out the Leisure Reading Collection at Hunter Library! 

Books in this section of the library are organized by genre or type. Check out the tabs to the right of this one to browse a small selection of the titles on our shelves. Click on a cover to see its catalog record and location. 


Whether commuting to class or heading home for summer break, try listening to a book.  You can find several formats for audiobooks including books on CD or digital audiobooks you can download to your computer, phone or other digital device.


If you like reading on your computer or other digital device (iPad, Kindle, Nook, iPhone, etc.), there are increasing numbers of ebooks available at Hunter Library. Those that might interest you most from a leisure reading perspective may be found several places.

Public Library Resources

If there's a title we don't have, we'd encourage you to also use the region's public libraries! They have many services and programs to offer including shuttling titles you may want between far-flung branches from all over the state. 

Check individual library websites for information about obtaining a library card.
