Choose from 24 newsletters that highlight recent releases and buzz-worthy books across a variety of genres and age ranges.

Each brief e-newsletter (some come monthly and some come bi-monthly) includes a picture of the book jacket, a description of the book, and links to our catalog so you can place holds or learn more about the featured books. Find your next read with a click!  Sign-up today!

On this site, you can create a free account although you don't have to.  On goodreads you can peruse descriptions of books, find book club reading ideas and more.  It is also a fun place to save the information on books you have read and give them a starred rating and an in-depth review if you choose to.

You can also link your goodreads account with your social media to see what books your friends are reading and let them review what you are reading!  If you find a write-up on a book that isn't in the Library catalog yet, you can save it as a book "You Want to Read".



If you have questions about NextReads or goodreads, please contact any GPL Reference Librarian at (914) 721-8225 .  Happy reading!
