Our Library Catalog offers multiple options for finding a new book. When you're on the main catalog page, you will see What's Hot, and a Featured List of books for suggestions. Click on the tab labeled List and you will find several lists of suggestions compiled by our librarians and other trusted sources.
NoveList Plus (library card required) is a great resource for finding a new author, another non-fiction book about the same topic you liked, or a novel set in the same area as your favorite book.
You can watch a quick tutorial on using NoveList from YouTube: NoveList 101 video
Tailored For You is our personalized book match service. Fill out our questionnaire about your reading preferences and a librarian will email you a list of book suggestions we think you'll enjoy.
Beanstack helps patrons earn virtual badges and prizes for meeting reading goals and completing activities. We use this tool for Summer reading and other reading challenges.
Goodreads is a website you can join, create lists of books you've read, or want to read. Many people use it for recommendations as well. If you rate books you've read, then the site will begin recommending titles you may enjoy.
What's Next™ Books in Series Database is a useful tool in finding that next book in a series, or determining the order in which a series should be read. We use it often when patrons ask for help. Thanks, Kent District Library!
Fantastic Fiction is an online catalog of authors and books for those of us who love to read fiction. FF is unique in that the website is centered round authors rather than books. Each author has their own page so you can see at a glance everything they have written in the order in which they were published, plus any new or forthcoming books.
Library Thing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily and keep track of what has been read. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, provides suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. It can be totally private, or become a way to meet other readers online who enjoy your taste.
