We’ve made it easy to find your next favorite book. Get alerts when the library has new books that interest you. Track your favorite author. Readers who are “in the know” have the advantage and a shorter wait for hot titles. Click the catalog links in the book descriptions within SelectReads to place a hold or see if the title is available at your library.
How did we do that? SelectReads. It’s what allows us to offer the book slide shows on the home page.
Think of SelectReads as your personal librarian. You can set it to alert you to new titles on subjects you pick out. You can also ask it to notify you about Staff Picks (what library staff is reading and recommending.)
It’s simple. You just browse through a list of topics and choose what interests you (e.g. thrillers, romance, etc.). Then you enter your email address, and you get a monthly e-newsletter with recommendations selected especially for you.
We all have favorite author(s). Sometimes we can remember when they usually have a new book coming out, sometimes we can’t. Select Reads has a cool fix for that.
Use Author Check to create a list of your favorite authors that are available in our library catalog. You can receive an email notice as soon as the library orders a new title by one of your favorite authors, with a link into the catalog to place a hold.
The New Book Alerts feature allows you to browse through our new titles and receive an email alert showcasing the newest titles purchased by the library.
You can also find your next favorite DVD, CD or Audiobook with Select Reads too!
