Books and Reading

Information to help you find a book to read.

Spend some time browsing the links on the left to find suggestions for a good book to read.  We enjoy reading just as much as you do and we'd love to talk to you about books. Stop into the library to see our displays of featured books, or talk to a librarian about what you're reading, or to get ideas on what to read next.

CATALOG

I am in the process of putting the libary's holdings on LibraryThing so patrons can search the collection 24/7 on the web using the following web address www.librarything.com/catalog/BlakesburgLibrary. It will be a long process, but I am starting with biographies and will begin working on the fiction collection before moving on to Young Adult and the Children's collections. Keep checking the library catalog's progress online to see if your favorite books/authors are in the collection. Use the catalog to see what the Blakesburg Public Library owns, and to find book reviews and "read-alike" titles for your favorite author or genre.
