LibraryThing Redux!

Many of you may already use LibraryThing to organize your own home or business libraries. We've now added some of LibraryThing's features to our catalog to help enhance your browsing and searching experience.

The features we have are:

  • Shelf Browse: you can see book covers arranged by call number
  • Tags: see and click on different labels for each item
  • Similar Items: see recommendations for both fiction and non-fiction
  • Series & Awards: see if this title has won awards, or if it’s part of a series
  • Lexile Reading Level: For select Children's and Teen titles

The Tiger's WifeTags and Book Recommendations for The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht

The best thing about LibraryThing is that all of the information is right in front of you. You won't need to search a separate database or check out different websites to get reading recommendations or series information. Just click on the book covers or links and get all the info you need!

As always, come visit us at any library branch, call our reference desks, or email if you have questions about this or any other resource.
