We are the Book Experts.

Keep your book requests coming!

Yes, our doors are open again for browsing, but we still love putting together book collections for individuals and families!

Be specific or vague: two books about chipmunks for a three-year-old; historical fiction about Texas Rangers in the 1800s; or, like this request that Terry’s working on, five or six books each for a fifth-grader and a first-grader (subject matter–”a little bit of everything!”).

Continue to call our book experts at the Help Desk for readers advisory.

Lots of folks reported that they loved discovering new authors when having books selected for them (after short and hopefully painless “interviews” about likes and interests) during the period the building was closed to the public.

We’re here to match you and your family with books you’ll love. It’s our favorite thing.
