Are you looking for your next great read?
We have a special Express Reads collection for adult fiction. Copies of the most exciting new titles go out for 7 days, they’re non-holdable, and non-renewable – so more people can read the best new books, more quickly! If you want to be guaranteed a copy, or don’t read as quickly, you can still always place a hold and get your copy for the full 21 days.
Thanks to the support of the International Dyslexia Association – Ontario, we’re adding some great decodable books to our children’s collection! Find them in a special display or ask in the children’s department.
If you’re having trouble finding a new book, we have lots of ways to help. If you click on a favourite print title in our online catalogue, it will display a dropdown section called NoveList Content, which includes information on the series, readalike titles, and other authors you might enjoy.
We also have an online personalized reading recommendations page – give us a little bit of information about what you like to read, and we’ll send along a few choices. You can find it at www.midlandlibrary.com/personal-reading-recommendations. Library staff are experts at providing recommendations, online or in person!
If you love reading, you’ll be thrilled to know that the Book Cellar, MPL’s used book store run by the Friends of the Library, is open again! This volunteer team, thanks to your donations and purchases, supports exciting Library projects like the Vault, MPL’s new teen space! You can find the Book Cellar on the Library’s lower level, and they’re open 10am – 4pm on weekdays, and 10am – 2pm on Saturdays.
