Leisure Reading

While our primary goal is to support academic endeavors, the library also strives to provide leisure reading in line with SAGU's media policies. You can search for fiction in our catalog just like you search for research, or you may browse our shelves in person to see what sparks an interest. Our fiction is located in a few Dewey locations.

  • 810-819: American Fiction
    • Most will be in the 813s
    • Young Adult Literature can be found in the 819s and in the CL-N section
  • 820-829: English Fiction
    • Most will be in the 823s
    • Shakespeare is in 822.33 S527
  • 830-899: World Literature
