About NoveList

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

Our People

We have over 25 librarians on staff, plus others from around the world who contribute their expertise to NoveList. Our staff bios give you a sense of our reading passions, but they don’t give you the full picture of their commitment to the library profession.

NoveList librarians are active members of the library profession, participating at every level from serving on ALA committees to volunteering at libraries. Wondering what that means? Here is a sampling of what our librarians are up to outside of their regular NoveList work:

  • 9 serve on book award committees
  • 9 have presented at conferences
  • 6 review for professional journals
  • 3 have published articles
  • 3 guest teach MLS classes
  • 2 have been awarded the Romance Writers of America Librarian of the Year award
  • 2 serve on ALA committees
  • 1 has been elected to ALA office

Our librarians are active in the profession for the same reasons you and your colleagues are — because public libraries and reading change lives. Like you, we think it's important to be a part of this life-changing work.

"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
