Monthly New Book Lists


What Should I Read Next?

Looking for book suggestions? This site lets you type in a favorite author to generate a list of similar writers and works. If the reference librarian isn't available, this is the next best thing for book recommendations!

Fantastic Fiction

Looking for an author's work in its entirety? This great website is for fiction only, and the best place to see all of an author’s series, including upcoming publications.  Please note that the library may not own all of the books included on this site.  But, we'd be happy to get them for you!

Book Clubs

The current adult book clubs, Starry Night, and Afternoon Delight, are full! To be placed on a waiting list, please email the Adult Reference Librarian. To see what each club is reading, click on its name.  Please feel free to drop in and see us anytime. Starry Night meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m.; Afternoon Delight meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 1 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Summer Reading

The Adult Summer Reading program is a great opportunity to read, help your community, and win prizes. This year's theme is "Build a Better World."  The program starts on June 1st and ends on July 14th.  Participants are encouraged to visit the library anytime during the program to sign up.  When you sign up, you will receive entry forms for each weekly prize drawing.  To enter the drawing, just read a book and do a good deed.  Fill out the form with your name, basic information about the book, and at least one way that you contributed to your community during the week.  We will be giving away $20 gift cards to Amazon or Aldi (your choice) every week.  The final prize drawing is for a $50 gift card!  Read books, better your community, and win prizes.  It's a WIN-WIN-WIN!
