Library Guide

The best way to grow your Library at your own pace!

The “Library Guide” package includes a personal Home Library consultation and a personalized Library Stylist Book List of 30+ titles custom-selected from your interests, passions, book-loves, and Library Style.

Home Library consultation

We’ll schedule a one-on-one, in-person Home Library consultation to talk about the books you love, the ones you have held onto over the years, the ones you have let go. What is your favorite book? Your least favorite? Your go-to genre? Are we designing for a special collection (starting your child’s first Library; filling that shelf in your new kitchen with the best cookbooks) or a special moment (Summer vacation; Retirement)? These questions and more will help me learn exactly what your Library Style is!

Your Custom Book-list

After our meeting, I will research and develop a custom list of at least 30 books that fit the styles, genres, and Home Library spaces we have agreed upon. Your unique Library Stylist Book List will include not only titles, authors, etc., but also personalized notes explaining why I have curated each selection especially for you. I’ll point you towards some recent excellent reviews and great local bookstores where you can purchase any or all titles at a Library Stylist discount!

Shopping local…

The Library Stylist uses local bookstores and personally-trusted used-book sellers whenever I can. If you have a favorite indie bookshop, let me know! I would love to get to know them and keep your business there! And if you don’t have a favorite independent bookseller, I’m happy to recommend some of my favorites in Chicago and beyond!
