Rita Recommends is a free, online readers’ advisory service created by OC Public Libraries that provides personalized reading recommendations to readers of all ages. While OC Public Libraries offers a wide range of materials, services and programs, books are still a major part of its mission. Rita Recommends invites readers to fill out an online survey to share books they have enjoyed reading in the past. With the surveys completed, library staff with a love of connecting readers with great books evaluate the surveys and use a variety of tools to select five reading recommendations available through OC Public Libraries. In less than a year, approximately 600 patrons have requested a personalized list of book recommendations and authors to read curated by OC Public Libraries’ staff.
