Resources That Rock: NoveList K-8 Plus

You may or may not know that RFPL offers its patrons a host of Premium Online Resources. These can be found by visiting our website and clicking on the Online Resources tab at the top of our homepage.  

NoveList K-8 Plus is particularly useful for kids, parents and educators looking for their next great read. Librarians use this resource regularly to help patrons find great books--and they’re usually surprised to learn that they too have access to this great tool with their library card! You can search for books by title, author, subject, keyword or genre. You can also limit your search results by age, grade level, and Lexile reading level.

NoveList can also help you find read-a-likes. For example, if your child loved reading Frindle, you can search for that title in NoveList. The record for Frindle will include a list of similar reads that your child may also enjoy.  

NoveList records often include a reading level info, a summary, reviews, book lists and articles. It is worth noting that not all books that are listed in NoveList K-8 plus are available at RFPL, so be sure to check our catalog to see if a title is available. 

For educators, NoveList offers up great features like picture book extenders, book discussion questions, and curriculum-based book lists.
