Bestseller Collection

The main floor of Grafton Library is home to a small, unassuming shelf full of popular bestsellers for leisure reading between coursework.

These bestseller books are organized by author's last name; there are no call numbers here. They may appear in your searches in GLDYS- you will know they are bestsellers because the collection is listed as "Popular Reading", and the call number is listed as the author's last name. Bestseller books circulate for four weeks at a time, and you have up to three of these gems out at one time. 

You can read more about our browsing bestseller collection here.

Like Grafton's Facebook page for updates when new bestsellers and DVDs arrive!
