Introducing Book Butler, the service that selects books for you

Posted on July 31, 2020 at 6:00 am

When you can’t browse the shelves in the library, wouldn’t it be great to still enjoy a serendipitous book discovery?

That’s where Book Butler comes in.

Book Butler is great when you aren’t sure what exact book to read next, but you know the genre or type of book you’d like to read. If you are looking for a cozy mystery, a gritty true crime book, a science fiction adventure, or a great biography, we will find a few for you to read.


Simply make the request on the Book Butler web page by choosing among the options, including books for kids, teens, or adults and the various genres you would like to read. You can even select a family read-aloud bundle, which contains picture books and chapter books great for families to enjoy together.

Based on your request, our staff selects 3–6 books from our shelves, including large print books and audiobooks on CD, if you prefer those.

All of the items are placed on hold to your account and at the library where you’d like to pick them up. Then you’ll get a notice when your holds are ready.

Picking up your books is easy with our curbside pickup service.

Your Book Butler selections check out to you for four weeks, giving you time to read or listen and hopefully enjoy!

Requests are limited to one per month per cardholder.

If you are unable to access our website or need help requesting a Book Butler bundle, you can call us at 509.893.8400 and we will be happy to help you.
