Looking for a good book to read? Look no further!


Welcome to the Popular Reads Libguide! If you are looking for a good book to read, this is the place for you! Although University of Kentucky Libraries does not have a popular reading collection per se, there are books for all types of readers throughout the shelves! So regardless of genre or topic, there is most likely a book for you at UK Libraries. 

Where is this book?

While much of UK libraries print collection is available in Young Library, it is possible that the book you are looking for is in another library, or even in storage.  Regardless of the location, UK students, faculty and staff, as well as community members with a library card can pick checkout books. It is even possible to have a book sent to a campus library closer to you to pick up, using Book Express.

Not at UK?

As the University of Kentucky Library spends the majority of the budget on academic and course materials, the library may not have some of the leisure reads you may be interested in reading. If you are interested in a book that UK Libraries does not own, try the Lexington Public Library Lexington Public Library, or your local public library. Another option is Interlibrary Loan.
