Tools for Book Lovers: Home

Here you'll find links to great resources to inspire your next reading adventure.

Lost in the stacks? Need a sure-fire title for your book club discussion? Or are you just looking for something good to read? Check out these resources gathered by library staff.

Don't forget, library staff are always ready to share suggestions tailored to you! 

  • Is there an author you love who just doesn't write fast enough? We can suggest similar writers or series.
  • Looking for books on a specific topic, from heart-warming to weird? We can find fiction or non-fiction that explores it.
  • Want suggestions for that person in your life, from five to eighty-five, who's hard to choose books for? Tell us some of their favourites and we can suggest a few new titles to try.
