If you love to read, but sometimes find yourself in a reading rut, or just in a struggle to figure out what to read next, the Rock Island Public Library has some tips for you.

The Rock Island Public Library will host another one of its free online “Library University” classes at 1:00 pm on Thursday, November 12. In “What to Read Next” Reference Librarian Karrah Kuykendall will offer tips on how to find the perfect read for you, with how-tos on using GoodReads, FantasticFiction, NoveList Plus, and other readers’ advisory tricks of the librarian trade. 

This class will meet online via Zoom. To receive the meeting invite, register with an email address at the library's website events calendar. 

Speaking of reading, the library is currently offering a just-for-fun “Read Grateful” online reading challenge through November 30. Participants track 11 hours of reading in the 11th month to earn digital badges and gratitude reminders. The challenge is open to all ages, with book suggestions available. To enter and participate, use the online Beanstack link at the library website or download the mobile app.
