Every day, tens of thousands of librarians working in 16,000 bricks-and-mortar public library buildings promote books, authors and reading. They recommend books in person, through their Web sites, and through newsletters to millions of library users.
LibraryReads harnesses the time-honored value of “librarian’s picks” into a single nation-wide discovery tool, consisting of a monthly list of ten must-read picks of newly-released titles. This tool will influence millions of library users, reaching beyond library walls into bookstores, media outlets, distributor recommendation engines, and online retailers. The first list was released in the fall of 2013 and focuses on adult publishing programs.
