As well as mainstream fiction we have a large collection of Graphic Novels featuring Manga titles, superheroes such as the Batman/Dark Knight classics, series like Star Wars and much more.

In addition to the popular Science Fictionand Fantasy section (check out the link below for more informationabout the Central Library Science Fiction and Fantasy Reading Group ), there are also the Classics, Teenage and Lesbian and Gay fiction collections where you will find many diverse genres and titles.
