Stumped on what to read next? If you are looking to expand your reading with new titles, authors, and genres, this is for you! Shelf Help is a brand new service for adults looking for a personal shopping experience. Patrons will fill out a form that asks a variety of questions about their reading habits and what they are looking for in their next great book. The request will then be matched with one of our expert staff, who will review their choices and pick two or three books we believe you'd like. The books will be placed on hold and waiting in our brand new Shelf Help canvas bags.
