The Blue Earth County Library System has launched a new online service.  “Ask a Book Nerd” provides personalized recommendations for patrons of all ages and interests.

Since in-person browsing at the library is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this service offers patrons the pleasure and excitement of discovering new authors, topics, and titles from the comfort of their own homes. To use “Ask a Book Nerd”, patrons can visit and fill out a brief form with their preferred reading formats, genres, subjects, and examples of favorite books.

Separate forms are available for adults and children.  A form is also available for K-12 students seeking assistance with research projects. Recommendations will be hand-picked by experienced library staff members and provided to the patron within two business days.
