Reader’s Assistance

Finding your next book to read or DVD to watch sometimes can be difficult. So many titles to choose, so little time. We offer several reader’s advisory resources to help make the choice easier.

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.

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 an interlibrary loan tool, but its immense database is wonderful 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.
