Your Next Great Read: The Denton Library's Browsing Collection

Your Next Great Read Awaits  Blagg-Huey Library staff member Ginger Bartush looks for her next great
read in the library's Browsing Collection. The collection is stocked with current bestsellers and other popular 
books to support the recreational reading of TWU students and faculty and staff members. Photograph by Jon

Your next great read may be as close as the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.

You wrote it down so you wouldn't forget it--the name of that book you've been meaning to read . . . for a while now. Look for it in the TWU Libraries catalog, which contains best sellers like The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins; Ron Chernow's Alexander Hamilton (the basis for Hamilton, the Pulitzer Prize-winning hip-hop musical); and The Wright Brothers by David G. McCullough.

Prefer to browse? Fiction and nonfiction titles fill the library's first-floor Browsing Collectionyou never know what you'll find on its shelves. There are New York Times best sellers (including I Am Malala, Go Set A Watchman, and Wolf Hall); PBS Masterpiece tie-ins (like the Grantchester mystery series by James Runcie); the inspiration behind movie blockbusters (A Game of Thrones, anyone?); and other well-known titles--all available for checkout with a current TWU ID. Browse recent additions virtually with our Browsing Collection widget (see it front and center, for a limited time, on the library's homepage). However you check for your next great read, do it often--new books arrive on a regular basis. Need assistance? The Information Desk is just across the lobby from the Browsing Collection; reach it at 940-898-3701.

Are you a TWU student or staff or faculty member? Then find your next great read at the Blagg-Huey Library. Fill your water bottle at one of our filtered-water fountains, stop by Starbucks, or get a cold drink from a vending machine. Appreciate the space's art and exhibits while you choose just the right chair, in just the right spot, in one of the most beautiful buildings on campus. 

Sit in air-conditioned comfort, crack open your newly-found book, and . . . breathe.
