Whether you want recommendations for new reads, want to discuss what you just read, are interested in attending an author presentation, or are are looking for something for your book group, the Camden County Library Readers' Club is the place to start.
Book and Author Events
Go directly to SignUp, our online reservation system, to see all the book discussions and events we have scheduled and to register for the ones that fit your interests and free time. We have book clubs for adults, kids and teens in different genres that meet on a regular schedule. Or stop by when we have an author visit or presentation.
Camden County Librarians have created a number of book recommendation newsletters in different categories. You can subscribe to your favorite genre and get newsletters each month, or just check out our archive of previous suggestions.
Book Recommendation Databases
The library has subscribed to databases that will give you great ideas on what to read next. Enter information on the kinds of books and authors you prefer, and get recommendations for other titles you'll like. Find articles, author interviews, book discussion guides and more.
Books & Authors from Gale
Explore the latest fiction, essential non-fiction and the authors behind the titles. Browse these and other works, using tools that make finding them and remembering them easy. Include book reviews from more than 30 sources (and users can generate their own reviews), bibliographies, and links to related social sites like del.icio.us. Users also can create reading and search lists in their user accounts, which remain intact from visit to visit in a “My Reading Room” feature.
Fiction database that provides subject heading access, reviews, annotations, and more for over 120,000 fiction titles. Also includes Author Read-alikes, Book Discussion Guides, BookTalks, and Feature Articles. This database is provided by the New Jersey State Library.
