Librarian Picks

Let us be your shopper!

Out of ideas? Read your favorite series all the way through? Let our Reference, Young Adult, or Children's Department staff pick some titles for you. You tell us what you like, and we'll introduce you to more authors and movie makers. It's like having a personal shopper for your Curbside or in the buildings pick-up!

Fill out the form below, and we will pick out five titles for you to try. Once they're on hold for you, you'll receive a notification, and you can set an appointment to pick them up curbside. Enjoy something new!

Please let us know what kind of items you're looking for, including if you would like a mix (i.e., 3 books and 2 DVDs). We will recommend up to 5 items per request.
