Good day Ottawa readers!
When you have read all the books by your favourite author or you have to find a book for your child who is reading Harry Potter for the 3rd time, you know it is time for you to consult OPL's 7 Tips, Tricks and Tools to Finding a Good Book.
List of tips, tricks and tools:
1. Most Requested by Month: This link displays OPL reader's most requested titles of the month.
2. Bestsellers: Discover the best selling books according to a variety of Canadian and American newspapers and other groups here.
4. #AskALibrarian: Every Thursdays at noon on X (Twitter), Ottawans can consult librarians (including ours) from across the continent for reading recommendations by searching #AskALibrarian on X.
6. Related titles : When you select a book on the OPL website, lower down on the web page, under the book description, there are 'Related titles' and 'Community lists featuring this title'. These may offer some interesting suggestions.
7. Staff lists: Finally, from our website, it is possible to search for lists of book recommendations compiled by library staff. When performing a search, select 'List' rather than 'Keyword' to find lists of similar reading recommendations.
