Fox Picks

Discover new adventures, hobbies, people, ideas, stories, concepts, and more custom picked just for you!

Fill out an easy online form (below) to tell us about your interests, and a professional librarian will choose materials just for you! Your Fox Picks will be already checked out to you and packaged up in a special bag with your name on it.

Here’s how it works:

  • First you’ll fill out our Fox Picks Form (below). You will need your library card number. You will let us know if you want books for an adult, teen or child, and if you’d like to pick up your Fox Picks at the Dundee Library or Randall Oaks Library (you can even select Home Delivery and we’ll drop them off at your front door!). You can tell us your preferred reading formats like book, large print, audiobook, or playaway (you can choose more than one).
  • Next comes the fun part… you will click through a series of buttons that let us know what you like and don’t like in all kinds of genres, both fiction and non-fiction. We’ve also provided boxes for you to give us even more specific preferences.
  • Our friendly and knowledgeable librarians will choose a selection of titles based on your preferences.  They will be checked out to your account for three weeks. Once you’ve filled out the form, you will receive an email confirming that we received your preferences, and another when your Fox Picks are ready.

I understand the library will do its best at offering a great Fox Picks experience for me, but also understand teen books may contain controversial themes, mature content, and/or profanity. I accept responsibility for determining what is and is not appropriate reading material for me and will not hold the library responsible for providing materials I may deem inappropriate for myself.
