The James V. Brown Library has “Got You Covered for Your Next Great Read.” That’s the slogan of our popular readers’ advisory service, which was designed to help readers fall in love with a new book.

Library patrons seeking book recommendations simply fill out an online questionnaire about reading habits, likes and dislikes. When completed, the library’s team of highly-trained library professionals will provide a list of 10 to 15 books available through the Lycoming County Library System complied into your very own Book Guide.

The questionnaire can be found in the “Using the Library” section of the website ( and selecting “Book Suggestions.” The form also is available at the Help Desk at the library, 19 E. Fourth St.

School-age children in the Accelerated Reader program can also find books by using the AR Book Finder site available through the “Youth” tab on the library’s website, where you’ll also find apps and other learning resources. No matter what your age, we’ve got you covered for your next great read.

Feel free to call our staff for suggestions and recommendations at 570-326-0536.

The James V. Brown Library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and 24/7 at
