Connect with FRVPLD on Goodreads

Sean's picture
FRVPLD now has a group on Goodreads! Come join library staff and fellow patrons to share your love of books!  If you’re not familiar with Goodreads, it is a free website where you can keep track of your reading, connect with other readers and reading groups, get reading recommendations, look at book reviews and ratings, and more. If you would like to learn more about this website, I will be teaching a Goodreads class on Tuesday, June 18th from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Dundee Library. Please register if you would like to attend.

Once you join the group, you can participate in any open discussions that the group has or create your own discussions, look at the group’s bookshelves, invite other people to join, see what other group members are reading, and more. Staff will be posting about things going on at the library as well, such as our book clubs and the Summer Reading challenge. Our hope is that staff and patrons can connect with each other, give each other reading recommendations, and have meaningful discussions.  Everyone is welcome, so please come join us!
