LibraryReads recommendations debut this fall

Logo: LibraryReads
Readers’ advisory has a chance to expand its scope. From Molly Driscoll, writing for the Christian Science Monitor, libraries all over the country will contribute to a Top 10 recommendation list starting this fall.

Driscoll cites a statement by Robin Nesbitt, collection management director of the Columbus Metropolitan Library:
“Every day, thousands of people who work in libraries recommend books in all categories and genres to the communities they serve. LibraryReads will harness their passion and deep book knowledge, and create a new way to connect readers and authors, using the incredible collective outreach of library systems, big and small, across the country.”
LibraryReads is overseen by a committee that includes library staff members and advocates, with assistance from the Association of American Publishers and American Booksellers Association. Any regular library employee can make a recommendation. Selections will be compiled from top picks.
