New Workshop Coming Up!

Readers’ Advisory 101 Workshop

Thursday, December 13 @ 9:30am
Finger Lakes Library System Conference Room


Do you panic at the thought of trying to suggest a book to a patron? Through tips and suggestions, we will dispel the popular myth that you can’t judge a book by its cover and show that from name placement, color selection, and even font size, every inch of a book cover has a story all its own. You will leave knowing how to tell science fiction from fantasy, thrillers from suspense, and even how racy a romance novel will be with just a quick glance.  We will also teach you how to “quick dip” a book from your stacks for reader appeal.  Learn how to use Novelist to find great read-alikes, author suggestions, genres, and more.
