I'm looking for a good book to read. Can the library help me find something that will fit my tastes?

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 two years that the program has existed at TCCL, we’ve created over 800 personalized reading lists for our patrons.

You can find Your Next Great Read on our Reader Tools page, which is under the Explore tab on the library’s home page. Just fill out the survey regarding genres, topics, and past favorites and we’ll put together a batch of suggested reads for you. You can check out a sample finished reading list to give you an idea of what to expect. Please allow 7-10 business days for your completed list.


I am primarily interested in scholarly titles. Biographies pertinent to the specified genre are also certainly of interest.
