For Readers

We’re here to help! Whether you’re looking for the latest from your favorite author, a read-alike from a new author or something completely outside your usual, we can help you pick the perfect next read.

When you register for the Personal Book Shopper service, your friendly STPL librarians will select books for you, based on your reading preferences. Just follow the link below and fill out the online form. The library will contact you when your books are ready for pick up from the Holds shelf.
