Readers' Resources

Not only do we have a great selection of books at Laman Library, but we also have some Readers' Resources that help you find books you like based on other books you've read and enjoyed.

 

GoodReads

This independent, third-party social networking platform for readers allows you to see what your friends are reading, keep track of what you've read and easily organize books into lists. And if a book is on your "wishlist," you'll get an automatic notification when one of your friends (or Laman Library) adds it to their shelves for you to borrow.
