READING SUGGESTIONS VIA EMAIL WITH BOOKLETTERS
Did you know the library has a very popular email service called "Bookletters?" Subscribe using your email address, and you will be mailed a list of new books in whatever categories you choose at least monthly, and sometimes more often. You can also use the service to sign up for the Library's bimonthly newsletter, and for monthly book suggestions from our Library staff members. For more information: http://library.booksite.com/6952/signup/?list=NLSGN
For more book suggestions, try our New and Notable page.
