NoveList Plus

NoveList Plus

NoveList, as voracious readers know, provides fiction lovers with some great tools for finding recommendations and read-alikes. Now we’ve added NoveList Plus, which provides all the same tools for non-fiction, with categories like travel writing, history, and true crime, to name just a few. Use NoveList Plus to find Book Discussion guides, lists of Award Winning titles, Recommended Reads and Author Biographies, or simply for a quick and easy way to search thousands of books to find just the ones that perfectly satisfy your literary desires!

Hobbies and Crafts and NoveList Plus are both available from your home, school or office computer with a valid library card number and PIN.
