Book Butler

Book Butler does the browsing for you!

Book Butler is our new service that provides you with books in genres you enjoy reading. Spend less time looking for a good book and more time reading one.

Each Book Butler bundle contains 3 to 6 titles curated by our staff from the genres of your choice. You may discover a new favorite author or a book that you might not have found browsing on your own.

How Book Butler works

  • Submit the Book Butler Request Form below, selecting from a list of book genres and sub-genres that interest you and providing other information about what you like to read.
  • Our staff selects 3–6 books based on your Book Butler request.
  • We place those items on hold to your library account. (Note: Your library account will need to have fewer than 20 items on hold for us to place your Book Butler selections on hold for you.)
  • You receive a notice that the holds are ready for pickup at the library you selected in the Book Butler request.
  • You can then come to the library to get your books. You can even use our curbside pickup service to have them delivered to your vehicle.
