Our beloved and well-frequented Novel Brew Cafe is no more, but you can always grab a cuppa Starbucks in Berns or Trustees' and find yourself a quiet reading nook anywhere in the library you'd like. Most of our QEP books (popular novels) have been integrated into the call numbers 813.54, 813.6, 823.914, and 823.912 in the main collection.
They have red fiction stickers to help them stand out from those oh-so-important but sometimes less-than-exciting classics of literature.
