FINDING A GREAT BOOK
Online tools to help you find a great read:
- Book Psychic
- Staff Picks
- BookLetters: New and Notable
- Award Winning Books
- BookLetters email newsletters: Sign up and recieve lists of books and audiobooks on a regular schedule.
- The Dear Reader online book clubs are a great way to sample new books. Each day we'll email you a 5-minute portion of a book. During the week you can read 2-3 chapters and decide if you want to check the book out of the library. Every Monday we start new books. Sign up here and start reading.
Pick up a free copy of Book Page the next time you are in the library. This monthly "book newspaper" is an excellent way to find out about new and notable titles.
The Library subscribes to Bookmarks magazine, which can be found in the Periodical Room, near the Reference Desk.
Want to buy books? We have an online bookstore with ABE Books. The Friends of the Library have a booksale in our lobby each Wednesday from 10 to 3.
