Readers Corner

We love to help readers find great books. See below for several options to get you connected with your next great read. 

Reading Recommendations

Get a custom reading list created just for you by filling out our "Custom Reads" form with information about what kinds of books you're interested in. Library staff will then prepare a list of reading recommendations tailored just for you! Custom Reads forms are also available in paper form in the library. Library staff will do their best to respond to your request within a week of your submission. 

Log into Novelist with your library card number for reading lists and recommendations. Novelist has an "appeal mixer" to create combos of factors you're looking for in a book, like "Bittersweet and Compelling" or "Lyrical and Complex." You can also enter in a favorite book or author and get lists of recommended read-alikes. 

Check out our Reading Recommendations table in the library. (It's the big wooden table near the New NonFiction titles.) It's always full of reading lists, suggested titles, and copies of the monthly BookPage magazine.

Access the Library Catalog or Your Library Account

The online library catalog contains all the library's physical collection of books and other items, as well as ebooks and e-audiobooks from OverDrive.

To log in to your online library account, you will need your library card number and PIN. Once logged in, you can view your current checkouts, renew items eligible for renewal, pay fines, and place holds on items that are currently checked out.  You can also build and save lists of titles, for research, to maintain a "To Be Read" list, or for any other purpose you may need. If you do not have your PIN, please contact the library.  

Interlibrary Loan & Suggesting Purchases

If the library does not own what you are looking for, you may request an Interlibrary Loan to borrow the book from another library or you may Suggest A Library Purchase to recommend that the library purchase this item for the community's use. Forms for these requests are available by clicking the links provided here or in print format at the Library's Service Desk.
