“A Reader for Every Book, A Book for Every Reader”
The Williamsburg Regional Library is happy to provide our community of readers with personalized reading suggestions. Fill in as much of this reader profile as you wish. The more information you provide, the more likely it is that we can suggest books you will like. WRL librarians will then create a customized reading list for you. You will receive an email response within a week. Information will be kept in strict confidence between the reader and library staff.

While this service is only available to WRL cardholders, if you are a reader or a librarian who is interested in finding out more about starting an online reading suggestion service at your library, please contact us directly at read-l {at} wrl {dot} org.
