What do librarians and Tinder have in common? We’re both matchmakers! Though, instead of an awkward first date, you’ll get a potential new favorite book.
Our staff are always eager to set you up with your next great read. Our displays are great ways to find new books that fit a certain theme, with a variety of tropes and themes to pick from. We also have book lists on the Libby app to help pair you with the perfect eBook or eAudiobook based on your previously read authors. Here are some other ways to find your next NFB (New Favorite Book).
The bookseller website Brilliant Books has put together this amazing list of book recommendations that allows you to pick a book based on your tastes. They have varying descriptions of the book with increasing amounts in detail. If there is a title that piques your interest, you can always check our catalog to see if we carry the book!
Looking for a more personalized recommendation? Ask our librarians for help and we’ll ask you a series of questions to get a better idea of what you might like. There are so many sub genres, and it can be hard to find what you are looking for if you haven’t identified what you gravitate towards.
While it may be tempting to always reach for the shiny new arrivals with pretty covers, it can be a hit or miss method for choosing books. I recommend looking through the shelves and picking up some of the soft covered and well worn books that have creased pages. These books tend to be loved over the years by many different people, and I have read some of the most thought provoking and heartstring tugging books this way.
Nothing gets me out of a reading rut than reading books outside of the adult reading level. Whether it’s a popular Junior graphic novel, new middle grade fantasy series, or an old collection of nonfiction picture books, there’s just something about giving your brain a break and letting your curiosity about a subject grow! Plus it gives you some fun facts to tell at parties.
What book will you swipe right on next?

As the temperatures start to drop and our daylight hours dwindle down, it is important to take time to add some self care into our routines. It can be easy to slide off our regular exercise routines, go over budget with upcoming holiday plans, and for many people, the winter season can have you feeling blue. The winter season can be tough to get through, but these books from the library can help you feel motivated to maintain a regular, productive routine to keep you feeling your best.
These wholesome picture books are great for introducing the concept of self care to kids of all ages.
Take some time to read up on different ways to self care and incorporate different methods in your life.
Exercise is one of the best ways to improve your mood and relieve stress. The library has a wide variety of fitness books and DVDs to choose from for people of all ages and abilities. Best part--they can all be done in the comfort of your home and neighborhood!

The library is a great place to check out your favorite books, new movies, and Nintendo Switch games. What some people might not know is that the library can also help students achieve their goals with information and resources. No matter what your school level is (or how many years you’ve been out of it), we can help!
For new readers, our Easy Reader collection is color coded to help you find the level of reading that is both approachable and challenging for your child. The levels of easy reader books from lowest to highest are: blue, yellow, and green.
For older students who may need to research topics for class projects, book reports, and essays, we have a wide variety of books in our Easy Nonfiction and Adult Nonfiction sections. You can find a section of books on a certain topic by using our catalog or asking a librarian for help.
If you are interested in researching a topic and need credible or peer reviewed sources, the eLibraryMN (or ELM) has a database of e-books and scientific journals available.
If we don’t carry a book you are looking for, ask a librarian about submitting a Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. There is a $3.50 fee to help cover the cost of shipping.
The library also offers quiet study rooms that students can reserve for free. These can be used for studying, test taking, or even to attend a job interview--All the student needs is a library card to reserve a room! If your course requires in-person test proctoring, ask the front desk to set up your test day and time for a $15 fee.
Need to record? Ask about using the study room equipped with sound proofing.
Volunteering is also a common requirement for college graduation. Tutoring at the library is a great way to help students of all ages and backgrounds who may need extra homework or reading help. Reach out to Robyn Benda at (218)773-9121 ext 221 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering!
Finally, don’t forget to check out our wide range of test prep books to boost your test scores and computer/coding books to boost your resume:
