Looking for really good read? We’ve got you covered.

ReadersChoiceFor a mix that covers the gamut from razor sharp short stories to a moving portrait of a father and his autistic son, try Reader’s Choice 2015. This eclectic list is from an informal survey we did asking our patrons what book that they read in the past year was their favorite.

MarilynsFavsWant a real librarian’s honest opinion of a book? Adult services librarian Marilyn picks her favorites from the past year and tells you in two sentences (and an adjective) why you should read it. Like the Reader’s list, this includes both new releases and older titles.

Tired of being on the wait list for the latest best-seller? Try the best-sellers from past years! We’ve got lists of favorites from 2014, as well as 2013, and 2012. These are books that had tons of holds and were also hefty enough to support book club discussions.

AwardWinnersSpeaking of quality reads, why not trust the authorities? Here’s a printable list of Award Winners that includes past winners of the Man Booker, Pulitzer, and National Book Awards.

If you really want to keep yourself busy, try our Book Club Books: All-in-one Handout. It features our picks for good book club reads based on whether you want a classic book, something dark but compelling, something uplifting, and more!

Lastly, if you’re still not finding a title to tickle your fancy, then drop by or call the library. We’re here to help. Happy Reading!
