Reading Resolutions

Do you have a resolution to read more? Your library is the place to be! Check out the resources we have to help you succeed!

Our website is full of booklists and staff picks to get you inspired. Check out our pages just for Adults, Teens, Kids, and Ages 0-5. You’ll find seasonal booklists, staff favorites, different reading levels for kids’ books, and more. Have a favorite author or genre and want more books like that? Try our BookMatch service: fill out a form and tell us what you like, and we’ll give you personalized recommendations. Not sure what you feel like reading? Order a Bag of Books and we’ll pull a grab bag just for you!

Do reading challenges motivate you? Check out Beanstack: a new way to keep track of books you read, connect with friends and other readers, and participate in fun reading challenges. Create a free account, sign up for monthly challenges, track your reading, and see how far you can go with your resolution!

Is reading a social event for you? Check out one of our book discussion groups! We have book groups at multiple library locations, a virtual group meeting online, an outdoor walking book group, a book group related to the Chandler Museum’s exhibit, one of the only groups in the area to focus on mystery fiction, and a group that lets you pick whatever you want to read on a shared theme. Visit our calendar to find a book group that’s right for you!

Don’t forget, we have other formats of reading material. You can browse magazines and newspapers with PressReader and Flipster, all free with your library card. We have audiobooks (yes, we think it counts!) in our Cloud Library ebook collection, as well as audiobooks on CD and back issues of magazines to check out from your local library location. Good luck with your resolutions, and happy reading!
