Try Book Match, a new program that matches Library members with personalized reading recommendations from our Librarians. Fill out a short questionnaire and our Librarians will create a customized book list just for you!

What People are Saying about Book Match:    

"Thank you very much for these book suggestions. You are amazing!  All the books sound interesting to me. I don't know which one to read first and can't wait to go to the library this weekend."

“We got Creature of the Pines from the Unicorn Rescue Society series. I picked it up yesterday and when my son got home from school, he immediately started reading it and couldn't put it down. He loved it so much. Thank you for your suggestions and he is super excited to finish the series and the rest of the books from your list!”

"Thank you so much for your time and help. I love to read but didn't know where to start. The list you sent me is priceless and I will definitely make use of it."

“Thank you so much for the book list you sent me. It is very hard to go to the library and stare at the shelves for books, not knowing what each book holds. But these narrow down the books, and once again I thank you.”

"Whoo Hoo! I'll email you again when I've read these. They look intriguing."

"Thank you so much! I've placed a hold on all of the titles."

"Thank you! I will definitely check these out!"
