How to Choose a Book
Think about a subject you are interested in or would like to know more about. Perhaps you would like to read another book by an author you have already enjoyed. Decide whether you want fiction or nonfiction. Use the patron's catalog to locate books (their call numbers). When you find the book, look at the cover and illustrations. Read the inside of the book jacket to learn more about the book. Read a page in the book. Use the five-finger rule to decide if the book is too easy or too difficult for you. If it is just right for you, go check it out! If not, put it back on the shelf in the right spot and search for another book.
