Pendergrass Leisure Reading Collection

Pendergrass Library hosts a leisure reading collection containing popular and recently released fiction and non-fiction titles. Books in this collection are available to all members of the UT community and UT affiliates for a four-week loan period.

You can track the books included in our leisure collection through our Goodreads account. Available titles may be found on the Our Books shelf.  Our current titles and purchases can also be found using the UT Libraries' new items feed.

This is an evolving collection and will be built in partnership with our community. We are interested in what our patrons want to read and want to ensure that relevant topics and titles are not inadvertently omitted from the collection. Please use the form provided to suggest additional titles.  Feel free to ask our staff if you need any additional help or information.
