Well, we can certainly give it a shot. The Tulsa library offers a service called Your Next Great Read, which compiles a list of books and authors for individuals based on their personalized reading preferences. The Your Next Great Read service was started in the Spring of 2011, and modeled after the Looking for a Good Book program from the Williamsburg Regional Library System. In the year that the program has existed at TCCL, we've created over 400 personalized reading lists for our patrons.

Some are held at the library, while others are presented by outside groups such as Book Smart Tulsa, an organization devoted to promoting the literary arts in our city.
