Finding your next book to read or DVD to watch sometime can be difficult. We offer several reader’s advisory resources to help make the choice.
NoveList helps you search for books based on your preferences, readalikes, award winning titles, new authors or genres. Series your thing? NoveList can help track every title in a series. Divided into two sections, NoveList Plus and NoveList K-8 Plus, this resource provided a perfect tool for all ages looking for the next read.
Along with electronic resources, the library offers BookPage, a monthly magazine for new books. Pick up a copy of BookPage the next time you are in the library, or download their free app from the Apple Store.
Worldcat is usually considered an interlibrary loan tool, but its immense database of books, magazines and other formats is a wonderful way to locate older books and favorite authors. Ask a library staff member for the username and password to access WorldCat’s catalog.
And, of course, our own PrairieCat catalog is available to search for new interests and old favorites for reading. watching or listening.
