LOOKING FOR READING RECOMMENDATIONS?
Try our new services, NoveList Plus or NoveList K-8 Plus!
Have you ever finished a great book and wanted to find more just like it? Or wanted to help your child find just the right book to read? The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library now offers NoveList Plus, a helpful resource to help readers match up with the books that are right for them.
The NoveList Plus database connects readers to their next book by making recommendations for what to read next. One of the most popular elements is read-alikes. This feature suggests titles that are ‘just like’ other titles. If you’ve just finished a great book, log into NoveList Plus and find great read-alikes. There are also read-alikes for authors and series. Consider NoveList Plus your one-stop guide to great reading. It contains lists of recommended reads and award-winning books. It covers both fiction and nonfiction titles for all ages from the youngest readers to adults.
There is a new addition to South Dakota Titles to Go: the eReading Room for Kids!
This section of the website will show content just for kids.
Additionally, the SD State Library now offers access to Bookflix by Scholastic, a fantastic resource for young readers.
