Need Help Finding Your Next Book to Read?

Just finished a great book and unsure what to read next? Maybe you didn't really like that last selection and are ready to try something new.

We may be able to help! We have created a series of bookmarks that recommend additional authors if you like a certain type of book or a certain author. Feel free to ask at the circulation desk and we will be happy to show you where these bookmarks are and help you locate any of the books you might be interested  in.

You can also take a look at the "What Should I Read Next?" website which allows you to search by title or author.  The system then makes recommendations based on your search. Kirkus Reviews is another great site full of book reviews and helpful hints. Goodreads is also full of reviews. book lists, and suggestions.

Also be sure to take a look at the great book displays we have around the library. Materials in these displays are for check-out. Many times these are great books that you might not notice on the shelf. 

For a list of our new additions, be sure to pick up a copy of our newsletter in the library or you can read it here online! New materials added to the collection are always listed on the last page.
