PDA Event: LibraryReads Presents: Reader's Advisory 101

Tuesday, January 31, 2023 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Do patrons come to you with questions on adult authors and books, and you freeze? Perhaps you love to make book recommendations, but you don't have formal training in readers' advisory? The team at LibraryReads has come up with some quick and easy advice to help you help your readers! Rebecca Vnuk, Executive Director of LibraryReads, will showcase practical tips on common RA topics, from appeal factors to trending genres to how to read a book in 5 minutes. You'll also learn how to get free copies of adult books and vote for the monthly LibraryReads list!


Rebecca Vnuk is the Executive Director of LibraryReads, a nonprofit organization that works with public library staff and U.S. publishers to promote adult reading. She has an MLIS from Dominican University and worked as a readers' advisory librarian for a decade, and prior to joining LibraryReads, she was the editor for Collection Management and Library Outreach at Booklist magazine. Rebecca is the author of three reference books on the topic of Women’s Fiction, as well as a best-selling book on weeding library collections.
