There are too many great books out there to waste time reading the ones that don’t quite fit your tastes. To help make your selections easier, Manhattan Public Library is launching a new book review blog called BookTALK. This new service is an eclectic resource of reviews written by MPL’s own librarians. It can be accessed from home or from library computers at booktalk.mhklibrary.org.
Customized email subscription lists are also available. When patrons subscribe, they get to be among the first to know what new books are coming to the library, which means getting first chance to place holds. It’s even possible to select a specific age group or favorite genre, like Armchair Travel or Historical Fiction, so only notifications about those books will be sent.
These are two exciting new resources to help match you with great books. If you have questions, just email us at email@example.com, or call (785) 776-4741 ext. 141.
