A New Way to Discover What to Read Next

Do you use Goodreads?  Goodreads.com is a “social cataloging” site.  After creating a free account, you can keep track of books you’ve read (and your reviews of them) and books you want to read in the future.  You can also find out what your friends are reading and their review of books.  It’s a great way to learn about books and find out what to read next.

The library now has a Goodreads account.  Find us at username Allenstown Public or click here for an invite

On the Library’s page you’ll be able to see the library’s new titles along with reviews from library staff.  We look forward to friending you!
