Readers Advisory

Picking a book

Readers Advisory staff are trained to assist you with all your reading needs. We’re also happy to make music and audiovisual suggestions. 

You can talk to us in person by visiting our help desks on level 2 (fiction and audiovisual) and level 4 (nonfiction and reference) at the Downtown Branch or ask the Librarian at the Dawe Branch.

We also provide telephone assistance:

Fiction and Audiovisual  403-346-4576
Nonfiction and Reference 403-346-4576

Readers Advisory staff have created a number of suggested readings lists which can accessed on the Staff Picks page in the library catalog.

May We Suggest...? is an advisory service for RDPL Members. Simply fill out either the May We Suggest (Adult Fiction) or May We Suggest (Adult Non-fiction) form, email it to or bring it to the library, and library staff will develop a personal reading list for you based on the information you provide. Your list will take approximately three weeks to complete and we will call or email you when it is ready.
