While the primary mission of the collections at Saint Anselm College is to support the course curriculum, there are many areas that also support non-course interests, such as recreational reading, viewing, and music listening.
The Leisure Reading Collection is located on the Main Level in the Reading Room. Here you will find popular fiction and non-fiction titles.
The Juvenile Literature Collection on the Lower Level houses a growing selection of award-winning young adult and children's literature. While the focus is on newer titles, some earlier classics such as Rawlings' The Yearling may be found here. You may borrow them for your family's enjoyment.
The Film/DVD Collection is located on the Lower Level of the library across from the restrooms. Here you will find myriad feature films for your entertainment. The borrowing period is two weeks.
The Krantz Music CD Collection holds over 2,000 CDs. You may browse the collection or perform a title, composer, or performer search in our library catalog. Many music categories are represented in this collection: jazz, pop, classical, opera, showtunes and more.
The Reference Collection contains a variety of atlases, compendia, dictionaries, and encyclopedias in both electronic and print format, searchable from our library catalog.
