This blog is designed as an extension of the Reader’s Advisory department at Rolling Meadows Library. Our departmental mission is to provide the best service possible in regards to fiction, music, and movies.
Joyce Saricks, author of Readers Advisory Service in the Public Library, defines readers’ advisory as “patron-oriented library service for adult fiction readers. A successful readers’ advisory service is one in which knowledgeable, nonjudgmental staff help fiction readers with their reading needs.” (Saricks 2005)
Through Reader’s Advisory, we strive to uphold the Rolling Meadows Library Mission Statement:
To provide excellent customer service and information in a variety of formats, materials and programs that Educate, Inform, Enrich, Inspire, and Entertain.
To serve the citizens of Rolling Meadows, linking them with resources throughout the world and providing equal access for all.
Explore the blog at your leisure, and please feel free to ask us questions or provide your comments and suggestions about how we can better serve you!
