Find Your Next Book

Need some reading suggestions? Librarians to the rescue!

There are numerous ways to find your next great read with the help of recommendations from librarians around the country and the librarians right here at York Public Library!

1. Check out our Staff Picks

Peruse our staff picks for your next book.  If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even read through our Staff Pick Archives. 

2. Let Us Choose for You

Come ask us what to read next. We’ll ask you a few questions about what you like and what you want and with librarian magic, we will pull a few to try. If you can’t come in or would prefer to do so online you may also use our Custom Book Pick form!  While we can’t promise you’ll love every title we choose, we can guarantee we spent time thinking about you and did the best we could to meet your interests! Please note it will take at least 1 business day to pull items requested from the form.
