BookBrowse For Libraries

Librarians Say...


  • "BookBrowse is the first place I go to find books for our library book group.  I always start my title search in the book club section. Everything I need is there! I can find books by theme, settings, time periods and genres. And when I find the perfect book on that page, I can find a reading guide that will assist me with the group. Such an ingenious page, from a wonderful, wonderful site!"
    — Terye Balogh, librarian at Milpitas Library, CA
  • "We're absolutely loving BookBrowse! For the fun of it, I took a peek at our YTD usage stats and in two months, we've already seen more use of this service than many of our others in a year!"
    — Erin Chestnutt, librarian at Beauregard Parish Library, LA
  • "The richest content of any readers' advisory service by far."

  • "When we saw that BookBrowse had won Gold in the inaugural year of the Modern Library Awards, we weren't surprised. BookBrowse is a unique site for book lovers, with recommendations, reviews, author bios, and so much more. The staff at LibraryWorks loves to read and many of us were quite familiar with this wonderful resource. Our judges - librarians in public, academic, K-12, and special libraries obviously agreed that BookBrowse has a significant role to play in their libraries for their own research and for their patrons."
