NoveList Plus is an online resource free to library patrons and can give you answers to all of these questions and more. It’s an easy-to-use database which offers:
- Read-alikes for books and authors
- Series information (description, book order)
- Plot summaries
- Fiction and non-fiction recommendations
- Award-winning books
- Theme-based booklists
- Book discussion guides

This treasure trove for bibliophiles of all ages, teachers, and parents of reluctant readers is accessible through the library’s website, or through www.nclive.org. (You will be prompted to log in with your library card number.) NoveList Plus can guide you to your next book quickly, but be warned that you might find yourself falling down the rabbit’s hole, just like Alice in Wonderland! Contact the library by phone or chat if you need assistance, and be sure to let us know what you find in your NoveList adventures!
