Now's the time when people usually make resolutions! Have you been wanting to read more? Your library can help! Check out some of the resources we offer, all free with your library card.
Bookmatch - Tell us what you like to read and we'll give you personalized suggestions. You'll fill out a form and our librarians will respond to you within 7 days with a list of recommendations.
Bag o' Books - If you're looking for new things to read but you're not sure what, fill out our request form for Bag o' Books. We'll pull a grab bag of 20 books for young readers or 10 for teens and adults. (Downtown Chandler and Sunset locations only.)
Novelist - A resource you can use to find book recommendations based on appeal factors, curated lists, and read-alikes for titles you enjoy. Learn how to use it here. (Note: Once you find suggestions in Novelist, come back to our catalog to see if we have those titles/authors on our shelves.)
Books & Authors - Explore the endless possibilities and combinations of books, authors, genres and topics. The ideal convergence of science and serendipity, this online resource leverages the Internet's unique capacity to create, build, communicate and sustain communities of readers. (Note: Once you find suggestions in B&A, come back to our catalog to see if we have those titles/authors on our shelves.)
Book Page - A monthly book review publication that serves as a recommendation guide to the best new books published every month. Read it online or pick up a copy at one of our four library locations.
CPL Reads - Our library's own Facebook group, where we discuss different topics, genres and book news.
We're still open for picking up holds and for browsing. See our FAQ page for visiting guidelines and current hours, and keep in mind that we close the last 15 minutes of every hour for cleaning. (For maximum time, come in at the top of the hour! You can always come back in after the cleaning period.) Happy New Year!
