Evanston news delivered free to your inbox! 

The Evanston Public Library will launch Select Reads on March 7, a free reader’s service that gives library users the opportunity to select and receive customized updates of book lists, new arrivals, staff picks and notifications about authors and books that are most important to them.

Starting March 7, readers can sign up for SelectReads, New Book Alerts, and Author Check on the Library’s homepage at epl.org. SelectReads lets users subscribe to monthly newsletters of books on the topics they care most about. New Book Alerts make it easy to read about a new book and reserve it with a link to the Library’s catalog, while Author Check lets patrons sign up for newsletters that highlight two new authors in areas they love. Staff Picks lists will be available soon as well.

To sign up for the Library’s new SelectReads service, visit epl.org or contact the Reader’s Advisory Desk at 847-448-8620 with any questions.
