Here at the Center for the Reader, we specialize in Readers’ Advisory. But just what is Readers’ Advisory?
Becky Spratford (a librarian and expert in Readers’ Advisory) gives this definition: “Readers’ Advisory is a patron oriented, nonjudgmental public library service that strives to help fiction and nonfiction readers find books to read for enjoyment.” So, basically, Readers’ Advisory is all about connecting readers with materials. It can be helping someone find a great read, but it can also be showing someone resources to learn about authors, series, and more.
Readers’ Advisory is a way for library staff to interact with and engage readers. We understand that you’re passionate about reading, and we share that passion!
