Looking for something great to read? Need to know what title is next in a series? Where do you look for reviews and author information for your next book group title? Visit us at Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library, Wednesday July 28 at noon for a tour of the library database Novelist.
Novelist is just one of the amazing databases that the library makes available free with your library card. I love helping book club members find that next great title, as well as find supplemental information that takes the conversation deeper when they meet. From suggesting read-a-likes, providing important plot and character information, and especially top-notch discussion guides; Novelist is a readers' best friend!
In addition to this great resource, the library has books to help you find your next favorite title!
