Personalized Reading Recommendations

Looking for something new to read? Want a librarian to help you discover new titles? Answer a few questions about your reading habits and preferences and our librarians will respond with 3-5 picks, just for you.

While we are not able to welcome patrons into our branches for browsing we have expanded this service for patrons interested in having items selected and held on their behalf for checkout. When filling out this form please choose between a list of recommendations or having items held for pickup at your preferred location.

The more information you provide, the more likely it is that we can suggest books you will like.

This service is available only to Boston Public Library and Metro Boston Library Network cardholders.
The more you can tell us, the better: mood, dealbreakers, books that would be perfect if you hadn't already read them, etc.
