Select Reads: A virtual resource for inquiring minds

Do you want to:

  • know what the newest titles added to the catalog in the past week are?
  • look up the books that have won an Award?
  • learn more about an author and their books?
  • choose a subject and get some book recommendations?
  • see if that new movie is circulating yet?

Select Reads can do this and more!


Look for this logo/link on the right hand side of every NGC catalog page.

The tabs across the top of the Select Reads landing page link to the different services offered.

  • Monthly Newsletters – by age group, or topic of your choice
  • Featured Lists – curated by librarians across the county
  • My Select Reads – you select the specific set of topics you want
  • Awards Lists — every one of them!
  • New Titles – the latest additions to the catalog, by format, age group, or topic
  • Author Spotlight – read a biography, see their works

You can browse lists and follow the link back to check the catalog and title availability.

You can sign up to receive monthly newsletters on the newest additions by format or topics of your choice.

It’s a virtual library experience that’s easy and fun.

Try it out yourself and recommend it to your patrons!
