"Seattle Public Library Launches 'Next 5 Books' Program, Creating Personalized Reading List for You"
The Seattle Public Library has launched a new service called “Next 5 Books,” designed to provide personalized reading lists for patrons. All you have to do is fill out a short form (which takes five to ten minutes to complete), and a few days later the SPL staff will send you a list of five books recommended specially for you.
Direct to the Next 5 Books Web Site (Take a Look at the Form a User Needs to Complete)
You can also specify the format(s) you will accept:
- Book on CD
- Large Print
This service is made possible in part by a grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation with help from The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
