LibraryReads is a new program which harnesses the value of "library staff picks" into a single nation-wide discovery tool, a monthly list of ten newly released must-reads.
The goal of LibraryReads is to help connect books to as many readers as possible and showcase the incredible power that public library staff has in helping to building word-of-mouth for new books and creating audiences for all kinds of authors.
Any Public Library Staff Member Can Nominate Books via Edelweiss and NetGalley! Both services are free for librarians to register and use. Here’s how:
You must be an Edelweiss user and registered as a public librarian. If so, then you’re all set! To recommend a title, find the book page while logged into Edelweiss and click on “Your Review.” You will see the check the “Submit to LibraryReads” box on the bottom right of that box; click on it when saving your review to nominate that title.
If you are already an Edelweiss user, and logged in, but don’t see the option to “Submit to LibraryReads” when you click on “Your Review,” you may be in an Edelweiss organization that is not classified as a public library. In this case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
If you are not an Edelweiss user, please register for Edelweiss using the Organization Type “Library – Public” to join the LibraryReads community.
For more Edelweiss/LibraryReads resources, watch this webinar.
You must be a NetGalley user and registered as a librarian (see special recommendations for librarian profiles). If so, then you may nominate any of your approved titles via the “Feedback” button on the Title Details page. If you’re not a member of NetGalley, you may register at NetGalley.com, then you'll be able to request digital galleys and be invited to view new titles.
Read in any format you like–paper or digital–but please submit all your reviews electronically, via Edelweiss or NetGalley.
As a librarian, you can also get pre-approved to have access to all Macmillan galleys! For more information on how to get whitelisted, read this article.
Is LibraryReads limited to just librarians?
No; however, you must be employed by a U.S. public library. Participation is open to all staff members, no matter which area of the library you work in. You don’t need to belong to an association, and you don’t need a specialized degree. If you love to read and are passionate about discovering wonderful books, you are welcome to join!
How does the list get decided?
The list is a straightforward calculation: whichever ten books get the most nominations go onto the monthly list. The book with the most nominations becomes the #1 Pick. It’s as simple as that! Books from all adult genres and categories, both fiction and non-fiction are welcome.
Each month’s list will be made up of titles that are newly published that month, so please submit as far in advance of publication as is possible and practical. You don’t have to “hold” your nominations until a deadline – feel free to submit them as soon as you’ve finished reading a book.
What Should I Say When Nominating a Book?
Write conversationally, as though you were talking about a favorite title with a patron or colleague at the library, or with a friend. Use your own voice. Think of what sort of reader would enjoy this book, and describe it so that they can find it. What is special about this book? To what other authors or experiences might you compare it?
If you really loved reading something and don’t have time to write a review before the deadline, don’t worry about it. It’s perfectly okay to say “I read this book and totally loved it!” – that counts as a nomination. And don't worry about the quotes you see in the final LibraryReads list–they’ve all been edited for grammar and punctuation.
Can I Vote For More Than One Book At A Time?
Yes! We encourage you to nominate early and often.
Is There a Deadline to Submit Nominations for Books?
Yes. Library staff must nominate titles according to the deadlines listed below:
January 2017 list titles (includes December and January titles) are due November 20, 2016
February 2017 list titles are due December 20, 2016
March 2017 list titles are due January 20, 2017
April 2017 list titles are due February 20, 2017
May 2017 list titles are due March 20, 2017
June 2017 list titles are due April 20, 2017

October 2017 list titles are due August 20, 2017
November 2017 list titles are due September 20, 2017
How will the monthly list be announced?
The list will be announced via e-mail – you can sign up for the newsletter on LibraryReads.org.
How Can I Support LibraryReads Selections in My Library?
Every month the new list is published on LibraryReads, along with FREE downloadable marketing and display materials featuring jacket art and library blurbs, including online banner ads and color and B&W flyers. Need ideas?
* Create a dedicated monthly display of LibraryReads titles
* Post online banner ads on your library's website
* Include LibraryReads-recommended titles in your library's newsletter
* Print copies of the provided flyer and post them on your community bulletin board or have them available as handouts for patrons to take
* Print copies of the provided horizontal banner for patrons to use as bookmarks
How is the LibraryReads list different than other lists?
It's not a “best” of anything, and there are no judges or juries. The monthly list represents collective favorites – the books librarians loved reading and cannot wait to share! LibraryReads is designed to be inclusive, and to represent a broad range of reading tastes.
Remember to nominate early and nominate often!
