No library card is necessary—just an email address—for library website visitors and patrons to subscribe to any of the 31 different subject and genre newsletters. List topics ranging from Biography and Memoir to Fantasy to New York Times Bestsellers are sent on a regular basis, and include up to 12 titles. Subscribers can link directly to the library catalog from books of interest on the lists, and place a hold or request a title immediately. Even those library patrons without email addresses can take advantage of the lists by viewing them online, either at the library or from any Internet access point.
NextReads is an important part of our outreach to the community. We can better serve many library patrons who are less able to visit our facilities in person to browse the shelves and book displays to find something new to read. Our newsletters are our opportunity to bring the library to them—whether they are at work, school, home, or on the road. Our website and catalog are considered a “virtual” branch of the library, open 24 hours a day, available 365 days a year!
