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. However, we are not able to offer requests or campus delivery for these books.

You can track the books included in our leisure collection through our Goodreads account. Available titles may be found on the Our Books shelf; titles ordered but not yet received may be found on the Coming Soon shelf. We will also be sharing updates to our Goodreads account through Twitter and our current titles and purchases can be found using the UT Libraries' new items RSS feeds. Please follow us to help improve our creation of social media to support this collection. More information will also be made available through our blog and this Web page as development continues to progress.

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, or you can find paper forms available near the collection's bookcase. Feel free to ask our staff if you need any additional help or information.
