Books and Reading

Information to help you find a book to read.

Spend some time browsing the links on the left to find suggestions for a good book to read.  We enjoy reading just as much as you do and we'd love to talk to you about books. Stop into the library to see our displays of featured books, talk to a librarian about what you're reading, or get ideas on what to read next.

  • Search the catalog for books available at the library.
  • Use this form to suggest a book for purchase.
  • Find out what new books and materials are available at the library, as published in the Globe Gazette.
  • See the latest new books available at the library's LibraryThing account.
  • Call or e-mail the library to place a hold on a book.
  • Tell us what you thought of a book by submitting a Book Talk form.  You may receive a $25 gift certificate!
  • Read book reviews written by Mason City Public Library patrons here.
