Finding Your Next Great Read is as Easy as 1, 2, 3

Have you ever finished a book and not known what to read next?

The library has some excellent readers advisory resources to help you find your next great read:

  1. Talk to a librarian!

Your local library is full of avid readers who love to talk about books and are happy to provide recommendations based on your reading preferences. Come talk to us at the reference or circulation desk next time you are in! You can also check out our Staff Picks displays for some quick suggested reads.

  1. Use our catalogue!

Did you know that if you search a title in our catalogue you will automatically see read a-likes attached to the catalogue record?

For example, if you enjoyed reading All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (highly recommend for historical fiction lovers!) you could search this title in our catalogue and see similar recommended titles. Simply click on the drop down arrow for “Novelist Content” once you are in the catalogue record for a specific title.
