Personalized Picks

Not sure what to read next?  Want to try something completely new?  Middlesex County Library staff are here to help!  Simply complete this form, and library staff will provide a customized bag of 3-5 recommended items to be picked up at a branch or mailed to your home. 

Interested in eBooks, digital audiobooks or streaming movies?  We can also provide a list of digital title suggestions, simply select digital from the drop down menu.  

Please complete one request for each reader.  For example, if you would like suggestions for yourself and for a child, complete the form twice, once for each of you. 

Due to on-going renovations, this service is currently unavailable at the Ilderton and Strathroy Libraries.  Patrons of these libraries are encouraged to request Personalized Picks by mail, or for pick-up at a near-by library.  Regular curbside pick-up services are still available at both these locations.  

Which type of material are you interested in?
Which of the following platforms and content types are you interested in? (Select all that you are interested in. If you select multiple platforms, you may not receive recommendations for all at this time).
At which branch would you like to pick-up your selections? Due to on-going branch renovations, the Strathroy and Ilderton Libraries are not currently available as pick-up options. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you would like to have your items mailed, please choose 'Mail my Items'.
If you are looking for suggestions to read with a child or for a beginning reader, please provide us with some more details. How old is the child? Are you looking for picture books to share? Books they can read on their own? Can you give us an indication of their reading ability?
Tell us about some books (or movies) you recently enjoyed (try to name a few) and what you liked about them. Please be detailed about what you liked, the more information you provide the better!
Tell us about some books (movies) that you have disliked or been bored by (try to name a few) and what you found unappealing about them.
Tell us any other factors you would like us to take into consideration. Is there an author that you have read every single one of their books already? Do you enjoy certain genres? Do you typically avoid certain topics, bad language, sexual situations or violent content? Tell us about it here!
