Yes, we have fiction books in the library!

Western Libraries provides support for language and literature programs. That means that we have lots of fiction as part of the library collection.

If you have a specific author or title in mind, you can use the Library Catalogue to see if we have what you want.

If you don't know of a specific author and want to browse, you will find works of fiction in English shelved on the fifth (5th) floor of Weldon Library.
