NextReads Newsletters for All Interests


Subscribe to emailed NextReads newsletters of new titles, prepared by subject and annotated by librarians. Mystery, Nature and Science, New Fiction, Business and Personal Finance, Picture Books, Genealogy, Graphic Novels, and Historical Fiction are just a few of twenty-eight newsletter choices. Click on any newsletter to see a recent issue.

Check the box of each newsletter you’d like to receive--or choose all of them with one click. Most issues are published monthly or bimonthly. The New York Times bestseller lists, however, are sent weekly.

A simple form asks for your name and email address for where the newsletter (s) should be sent; upon subscribing you’ll get a verification email. You can change your mind and redo your subscriptions whenever you wish.

If you have any suggestions concerning the newsletters, please contact the library.
