You love to read; we do, too. Here are some favorite resources to help you find your next good book. Or come by in person and chat with your librarians!
We have eight book clubs at various Augusta County Library locations. See our Book Club page for full details and contact information.
We look forward to the first day of the month, because it means a new BookPage is released! Each issue covers new books in all kinds of genres: from cookbooks to romance, from adults to teen. Pick it up in the library or check them out online.
Having trouble finding out what book comes next in that series your reading? Look no further! Fantastic Fiction is a fantastic source of information to help you with the order of books in a series, author info, and forthcoming titles from your favorite writers.
It’s like Facebook for book lovers – follow your friends’ reviews, rate the books you’ve read, and find new authors.
