You can search this fiction database in the usual ways...by title and author, but you can also search by series, to find out if there are sequels to books you have already read. You can also look for “read-alikes” (“if you liked Twilight, you’ll probably like ...”). You can search by genre-not, for example, just by “fantasy,” but “historical fantasy.” Not just “romance,” but “contemporary romance,” and so on. The next time you want to remember more about a book and can’t recall the author or title, give Novelist a try. You can get to Novelist from the “Books and More” page on the library’s website, and if you’re at home, you’ll just need to enter your library card number to proceed. Even if you know the author or title, Novelist can provide a summary and linking terms that connect the book or author to others in its database.
