Are you unsure of what book to read next? Let one of our expert librarians curate a personalized bag of 5-10 books especially for you. Discover new authors; connect with modern classics; and explore new genres for children, teens, and adults.

“Our new Personalized Picks program is an opportunity for customers to save time and remain safe while still receiving an engaging collection of quality books,” said Maureen Langley, youth services department supervisor. “Knowledgeable library staff create a bag of books based on patrons interests and preferences, which can be quickly and easily picked up from our Contact Free Checkout shelves.”

This pilot program is being tested for larger use, and is currently only available at our Somerville and North Plainfield branches. Explore Personalized Picks at
