To get reading suggestions during "Books for Giving," log on to your Facebook account and visit the Library's Facebook page. Post a note on the Library's Facebook wall with some information about the intended recipient and what kind of books they like to read. Librarians from The Seattle Public Library will suggest two or three books that might make good gifts.


Readers are also always welcome to get personalized book lists with five hand-picked titles from the Library's "Your Next Five Books" service available on the Library's website at www.spl.org.
