Find the book that’s right for you with our online reader’s advisory resource, NoveList

NoveList will give you spoiler-free plot descriptions and reviews for a vast collection of both new and old titles to help you discover what your next great read will be. Through the site, you’re able to search for books not just by title and author, but also by genre and age-appropriateness.

As library patron Crystal Angevine notes, “It's super handy for helping find books, but also super easy to locate books in general. I like browsing it, so that I can figure out what books I want to read next.” 

Not only does NoveList offer tons of book suggestions, it will even let you know if the library has them and will link to our online catalog to place a hold.

“There's also a function that allows me to see if we have the item in the catalog without me having to retype on the new page,” Angevine notes.

If you’re hosting book club or participating in one that needs some new ideas, NoveList has a section just for you. NoveList’s Book Club resources page features tips on how to start and manage a book club, as well as book discussion guides for some of the latest hot titles, like Where the Crawdad Sings or The Gentleman from Moscow.  

If you need help navigating NoveList, stop by the library or bookmobile, and one of our staff members can help.
