What is Readers' Advisory?

Readers' Advisory is a patron-oriented service committed to promoting lifelong reading enjoyment. We share and talk about books and are more than happy to suggest good titles. We have award winners, mysteries, romance, suspense, historical, family sagas, Christian fiction, gentle reads, classics, literary fiction, holiday fiction, westerns, fantasy, science fiction, and horror novels. These books are available in regular print, large print and audiobook formats! Stop by the Adult Information Desk (next to the fiction collection) or the Youth Desk for your next great read!

We can even teach you how to use NoveList, a powerful tool to find books in a series order, books like your favorites, or books with a specific setting or topics.

We love making them and seeing the books fly off the shelves!
