Librarians Scout Books Based on Your Reading Interests

Back in the late ’90s when I was coming of age, I spent many nights curled up with Wally Lamb’s magnum opus She’s Come Undone, followed by his epic novel I Know This Much Is True. I just couldn’t get enough of Lamb’s prose. About the same time I was graduating from college, I decided to “graduate” to a different style of prose – challenging myself with the wit and vocabulary of Tom Robbins.

Changes in reading preferences happen to all of us. Librarians anticipate that. If you are like me and are looking for a new author to fall for, try the library’s Personalized Reading List Service.

Now that I’m in my 30s, my tastes have trended toward nonfiction, and our librarians have recommended some great biography authors for me to check out. They can help you too.

From contemporary fiction to biographies, from books-turned movies to great holiday stories, let our Personalized Reading List service help you discover new titles, new authors and new genres. After filling out the form, you will receive a customized book list tailored to your specific reading preferences. Best of all, our librarians can deliver it to your inbox or mailbox, whatever you prefer.

If you’ve used the Personalized Reading List service before, you may notice that we’ve made some changes to help you get through the online form. Answer a few short questions about your reading interests. Our librarians want to give you the best reading recommendations, therefore filling out the entire form is necessary – at least if you want the most relevant reading list possible. If you like the functionality of the new form – or if you encounter problems – please send feedback to
