New book recommendation service

The library is also debuting a new book recommendation service called “Your Next Great Read.” The service provides a custom book recommendation chosen just for the reader after they fill out the library’s online Book Recommendation Form at tinyurl.com/BookRecs2BPL.

The librarians will come up with three recommendations for the reader. They can also ask the librarians for a surprise or ask for one of their recent favorites.

Allow two business days for requests to be processed. The library staff will send an email back with recommendations.
