Finding a good nonfiction book
If you are looking for a good non-fiction book, and aren't sure where to start, ask a Librarian! 

If you're more of a self-serve person, here are some links and lists that might help you select a book you'll really enjoy.

School Library Journal compiled a list recently.



NoveList Plus is a great tool for searching for a new book


NoveList is a premium database that the library subscribes to and offers robust searching capabilities to pinpoint a specific type of book you might like, whether it's fiction or nonfiction.

NoveList makes it easy to find your next book based on one you’ve already read.

You can find recommendations in each title record in your Result List and at the Title Detail page.

To find title recommendations at the Detail page:

  1. At the Basic Search box at the homepage, enter a title of a book you've enjoyed and click Search.
  2. Access the Title Detail page by clicking on the title for which you want recommendations.
The "Search for More”  on the right side feature allows you to find similar titles based on the genre, subject, location, and appeal factors (storyline, tone, pace, writing style) associated with your title.



NoveList Plus also compiles lists of good books, by age group

Best Older Kids Nonfiction for ages 9-12 from 2013  is one example.
