About NoveList

We are passionate about working alongside libraries to create better communities of readers. 

Our Curated Content

Being confident in readers’ advisory is about more than having the best recommendations to turn to. At NoveList, we know it’s important for librarians to have quick access to fun, interesting recommended reading lists to hand out, book discussion guides that ask thought-provoking questions, social media posts that encourage your community to visit your website, and vendor-neutral purchase recommendations. Librarians from around the world turn to NoveList products for quick help with readers’ advisory through our curated content. 

Book Discussion Guides 

NoveList Plus's Book Discussion Guides offer unique content that you and your readers won’t be able to find anywhere else, including original questions (and possible answers), a summary of the book, and further reading suggestions — all designed to help book discussion leaders and members think about books in a new way.  

Recommended Reads Lists 

If you’re looking for quick book display ideas, a quick list of “good books” to give to a patron, or ideas for yourself, Recommended Reads Lists in NoveList Plus and NoveList K-8 Plus are a librarian’s best friend. Recommended Reads Lists are NoveList’s quick hits for good books, covering all ages and genres and including both print and audiobooks. Especially popular are our “For Fans Of…” lists offering reading suggestions tied to popular TV shows, movies, and music. Many Recommended Reads Lists are turned into book flyers for our LibraryAware customers.

Core Collections recommendation levels

Core Collections curated recommendation levels can help guide your library to a well-rounded collection of the most highly recommended reference, nonfiction, and fiction books. The four recommendation levels help you decide which books your library should buy, repurchase, or weed.

LibraryAware templates

The language, images, and subjects in LibraryAware templates are designed with libraries in mind. You'll find thousands of templates on the books, events, and resources your library cares about designed for the different channels your library uses.

"Books are a secret weapon in our struggle to answer big problems. Because reading books is how we learn new information, but also, they are how we learn to become better human beings. The stories found in books can open our eyes to new ways of thinking, give us a better understanding of other people, help us become more compassionate and understanding, and inspire us to think of new ways of solving problems."

Danielle Borasky, Vice President, NoveList
