Book Newsletters

Subscribe to monthly newsletters about new books based on age, genre, and more.

In addition to the monthly newsletters, Select Reads has some new features:

  • AuthorSpotlight - The AuthorSpotlights are newsletters patrons can subscribe to, or just browse through. They feature authors from a variety of different categories and offer descriptions of that person’s work, an example title, and some title suggestions based on that author.
  • Awards Lists - SelectReads has many awards lists available for patrons to browse. Each list has an explanation of the award and once a patron chooses to view an entry, they can easily check our catalog to see if a title is available.
  • My Select Reads - This allows patrons to essentially create their own weekly newsletters. Patrons can type in keywords and receive emails with recently added titles containing their interests.

Author Check
