Looking for a few good books?

Ever found yourself at the library, wanting to pick up a book but not sure what you want to read next? Tired of browsing the shelves without anything catching your interest? Well, we've got a couple of great solutions to your reader's blues.

First, you can check out & subscribe to our Staff Reads blog at (we've also put a link to it in the upper-right corner of this blog). It's a great resource to keep you up-to-date about what the library staff has found of note, and you can stay updated on what your favorite librarian has enjoyed! And it's not just limited to books--we suggest movies, music, spoken word, graphic novels, and more. We've really enjoyed adding our suggestions and hope you will enjoy reading them.

If you're already at the library and haven't been keeping current with our Staff Reads blog (shame on you!) there's another option: our librarians have been putting together displays that are packed with book ideas. Located next to the Reference Desk and in the New Books area, these displays feature brochures compiled by the Reference Staff, Kirkus book reviews, New York Times Bestseller lists, and tons of other information.

Last, but certainly not least, you can always ask us what you should read next--we're some of the most enthusiastic people around when it comes to books!
