The Reading Room of the Rocky River Public Library

http://readingroom.rrpl.org

The Reading Room is designed to link authors and titles with other authors and titles the reader may enjoy. It consists of thousands of titles read and reviewed by Rocky River Public Library staff.

After a librarian reads the book, he or she completes The Reading Room review form with author, title, other authors or titles the reader may enjoy, descriptors (subject headings), a summary, a critique, and basic data such as publication date, format, and the initials of the staff member(s) who read this particular title.

A person searching the database can access by keyword any one of these fields to meet a particular need. For example, if a reader wants to find books which are British mysteries with a rural setting and a police detective, he or she can search by “mystery,” “British,” “rural,” and “police procedural” to compile a list of books to read.
