Not sure what you want to read today? Looking for something new or different? Check out the UnWrap a Surprise display in the Children's Library this week!
The children's librarians have handpicked some of our favorite books and wrapped them in colorful paper so you can take home (and unwrap) a surprise book. Other than the label - "Picture Book," "Beginning Reader" or "Chapter Book" - the wrapping won't give you any other clue about the story inside.
So stop on by and pick out a book, it might just become your new favorite!
The winners of both the Edgar Awards and the Agatha Awards were recently announced, so if you're looking to add a bit of mystery to your summer reading, look no further!
The Edgars, named after Edgar Allan Poe, honor the best in mystery fiction, nonfiction, and television. The Agathas, named after Agatha Christie, honor the "traditional" mystery as exemplified by Christie's works. This is the award for you if you're looking for mysteries with no explicit sex, gratuitous violence, or gore. No "hard boiled" mysteries here. Check out these lists, and maybe discover a new favorite mystery author!
