Looking for Reading Recommendations? Check out NoveList Plus

Looking for a good book that's similar to an old favorite? Need to find a good adventure story, historic romance novel, or murder mystery? Are you looking for the next title in a series you're reading? NoveList Plus is your virtual guide to great reading recommendations. You'll find information about favorite authors, book discussion guides, and award lists. In addition, find fiction and nonfiction recommendations for all ages. Search by author, title, series, or plot description. Parents with school age children can also utilize the advanced search to search for recommendations by grade and Lexile Reading levels. Once you find a title that appeals to you, you can check the library catalog link that accompanies each title to see if we have the title in our collection. 

One new feature that NoveList Plus offers is searching for book titles that were recently mentioned in the media. You can now perform an advanced search and select a favorite show e.g. 60 Minutes, NPR Fresh Air, Meet the Press, Ellen, etc. to see what titles have recently been reviewed in the media and if the library owns that title or is planning to order that title. You can even set a date range if you remember a title being mentioned last month, etc.

Using NoveList Plus is like having your very own librarian on hand to suggest the next great book for you to read. In fact, the NoveList team is made up of librarians who like nothing better than to help you match and discover your interests and preferences. 

For additional reading recommendations, check out our Find a Good Book page, or contact us through email and chat, and a librarian will recommend something just for you.
