Find new book recommendations in our catalog!

Forget what place in a series your favorite title falls? Want to find new books to read based on your favorite genres or subjects? 

Now you don't need to look any further than our library catalog for that great information! 

We've added a new tab to the book listings in our catalog to provide more information about books you're looking at and help you find other great books to check out. While in this new tab, hold your mouse over any title for more details and a prompt to see if the book is available in our catalog. 

The new tab has the following sections: 

  • Summary – Learn more about a particular title to see if it's what you were looking for. 
  • About the Author – Read a short biography of the author and view some of their other books. 
  • Series – Check to see if the book is part of a series and the titles of other books in the series.
  • You May Also Like – Get in-catalog recommendations for other titles you might want to check out. 
  • Professional Reviews – Read reviews from sources like Library Journal, New York Times, Publisher's Weekly, and more. 
  • Also Available As – See other formats or versions of the same title, like ebooks or audiobooks. 
  • Tags – Use these words and phrases to find other books with similar characters, settings, moods, or plots. If you click on a tag, it will take you to a new screen where you can filter by genre, subject, and more. 
  • Book Profile – Get some nitty-gritty details about the book including characters, genres, topics, locations, and time period. 

While our librarians are always happy to help you figure out what to read next, we hope these new catalog features will help you find even more great books to read!
