Library Introduces BookMatch, Custom Reading Recommendations

Posted by lisap on

Our expert staff would love to create a custom list of books for you through our new BookMatch service.

The service is easy to use – simply answer a few questions on the BookMatch form. For example, do you like fiction or non-fiction? What genres do you enjoy? What format do you prefer – print, e-book or e-audio?

Using your reading preferences as their guide, our whipsmart librarians will select up to 10 books that meet your criteria, all available from Fauquier Public Library. Your custom list will be emailed to you, usually within five business days.

It’s sort of a blind date with no risk other than perhaps finding the perfect match!
