NextReads: a product of Novelist

Are you looking for a few good books to read? Sign up for one or more of Kanawha County Public Library's thematic e-newsletters and get great book suggestions by email. We deliver reading lists right to your inbox along with new gems, bestsellers, and related titles.

All suggestions include a picture of the book's cover and an informative text about its contents. Sometimes a link to the first chapter is available. Each of the titles is also linked directly to our online catalog where you can check its current availability. If the book you want isn't immediately available use your library card to log into your e-Library account where you can place a hold on the item and have it sent to your local branch.
