Wondering What to Read Next? Put Book Hunters on the Case

Not many people know good books better than librarians, though not all people agree on what makes a good book.  It's all about making the right match.  We'd like to offer our expertise in a new personalized service that connects readers with the books we think they will enjoy the most.

Perhaps you read much faster than your favorite authors can write new books.  It could be that you are overwhelmed by the number of book choices available in each genre.  Maybe you would like to encourage your teenager to read for pleasure, but have no knowledge about teen authors.  Whatever the reason, if you need any kind of reading advice, the HCPL Book Hunters can help!
