MRL Acquires New Database

7/31/2014
Have you every finished a great book and wanted to find another like the one you just read?  Have you wanted to assist a school child with finding a book that suits his interests?  Have you wanted to select just the right book for your book club? 

Massanutten Regional Library now offers NoveList Plus and NoveList K-8 Plus, a helpful resource and database to assist readers with books that are suitable for them, and the search can be done online and from the comfort of their home.  Library customers need to be valid library card holders.

One of the most popular elements of NoveList Plus is read-alikes.  This feature suggests titles that are “just like” other titles.  There are also read-alikes for authors and series. 

Covering both fiction and nonfiction for all age readers, NoveList Plus recommends books and award-winning titles. It also carries content such as professional and reader reviews, book discussion guides, curriculum guides, and other book-oriented articles.  Book groups and teachers find these resources especially helpful.

Library usage is a critical component in literacy and educational success, and NoveList Plus provides valuable support by identifying the right books for every reader.  With this component, NoveList helps younger readers achieve reading success.  Parents, teachers, and students can search for reading material by age, reading level, grade, and more. 

Audiobook recommendations are a recent addition to NoveList Plus.  When you want to find the perfect listening experience, whether it be short, long, for the whole family, or a specific narrator, this service will help.  Sound clips are included so readers can get a preview.
