THE LATEST BOOKS, FILMS, MUSIC, AND MORE
For more detailed information visit The Popular Library Guide page.
The Popular Library collection was created to make it easy to find the latest materials - all in one place. But its main purpose is to give you, the library customer, the newest bestsellers as well as books on tape/CD, movies, and recordings that you want now.
- THE BESTSELLER'S BRIGADE
- If it's a new title you want, it probably here. The latest fiction and nonfiction titles, from the the York Times Bestseller's list as well as hot new 21-day fiction, are represented.
- MOVIES, MOVIES. MOVIES!
- Why go to the video store? You'll find just about everything to meet your cinematic needs in Popular Library, from some of the newest releases, to classics and even foreign films.
- LISTEN UP!
- Maroon 5, Green Day, Kelly Clarkson, and Kanye West have all played at the Library. So have BR King, Frank Sinatra, Billy Joel and Toby Keith. If you're looking for one of the best music collections in the city, look no further. Popular Library carries a wide selection of the latest music, from movie soundtracks to gospel and most everything in between.
