Looking For A Good Reading Suggestion?
The Library maintains several lists that will help you find a good reading suggestion. Our Books & Reading pages are always a good place to start. Here you will find links to our Booklists, lists of recommended Websites About Books and plenty of staff reviews both Fiction and Nonfiction.
We're always adding and updating these lists with new items. Retold Fairy Tales and If You Liked The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society are a couple of our most recent lists.
If you still can't find anything to read, we have a form to fill out to get a Personalized Reading Suggestion.

Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence 2016 Winners
The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction were established in 2012 to recognize the best fiction and nonfiction books for adult readers published in the U.S. the previous year.
Congratulations to Viet Thanh Nguyen and Sally Mann, the 2016 winners!
Viet Thanh Nguyen won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction for his novel The Sympathizer. A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, The Sympathizer is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties.
Sally Mann won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction for her book, Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs. Here photographer Mann chronicles her rich and eccentric family history, told through the exploration of old documents and images stored away in her attic.
