Find a Good Book

Looking For a Good Book?

Williamsburg Regional Library's award-winning Looking for a Good Book? service began in October, 2004.  Since then, over 800 readers have taken advantage of the service, using either the Library’s paper or Web-based questionnaire to create a profile of their personal reading interests.  Librarians have then used those profiles to develop custom reading lists, based on books and authors that the readers have already enjoyed as well as on the readers’ literary likes and dislikes.
