Book collections

There are many, many great books pulled together as a collection to help you find what you are looking for quickly.

Bestsellers Collection

The Bestseller Collection consists of only the biggest sellers of the moment and are available to borrow for 14 days.

Bestseller items are displayed in a prominent position in Barrhead, Clarkston, Giffnock and Mearns Libraries and are easily identified by the brightly coloured sticker on their covers. This collection gives you the choice of borrowing the latest bestselling titles and avoiding any waiting lists. Reservations cannot be placed on items in the Bestseller Collection. Reservations can be placed on a copy of the same title held in the general collection.

Talking Together

The Talking Together collection of books helps parents talk to their children about growing up including puberty, relationships and sexual health. Many parents have said they find books a useful "prop" to start discussion with their children.

Quick reads

If time is your enemy when it comes to reading or if you simply want to build up your reading confidence, then why not try a Quick Read. Written by top authors such as Andy McNab and Ann Cleeves, Quick Reads really hit the spot. Short stories are another great way to quench that reading thirst quickly! Library staff love to read and are always on hand to recommend a great book.
