Do you know about Novelist?

Have you ever wanted something to read, but you weren't really sure what it was called? Or had a basic idea about what you wanted, but not titles or authors to look up? Novelist Plus was brought into existence for this very reason. This great online platform lets you search for all sorts of subjects and topics, and then allows you to filter what you want- fiction, non-fiction by age groups, publishing date and more.

You can access Novelist in the library through the library website. Simply go to 'What to Read' and click Novelist Plus and get into it! Ask your library staff for help if you get stuck, we've all used it time to time for ourselves and customers.
