Popular Fiction

Popular Fiction - The Library subscribes to both an Adult and Young Adult Automatic Bestseller plan to provide the hottest new fiction and nonfiction titles for the Rowan-Cabarrus Community. On campus, you can browse the selection of these books in a separate shelving area to make it convenient to find your next great read! If you want to know what's available before coming to campus, you can check our popular fiction category in the online catalog. This will tell you at which campus the book is currently housed. If you need it sent to a different campus, just let us know by using the Material Request Form found on the Library's website. 

If there is a book or an author you would like to see us get for the popular fiction collection, contact Lisa Shores at
