We are in the process of developing a phased approach to reopening that ensures the health and safety of our communities and staff. In doing so, we are following the best available advice from our county, state, and national health officials as well as the American Library Association. We plan to share our reopening plan next month, and our website will be updated with the details of the plan. Read more

Book Match: Becky M.

Becky M.

Becky loves almost all mysteries (she's not a fan of historical mysteries) because she likes to try and figure out "whodunit." She enjoys psychological thrillers because they are usually fast-paced, page-turners that are full of suspense. On the opposite end of the spectrum, cozy mysteries are tame, feature a bit of a love story, and have a "shtick" (main character owns a bake shop, is a psychic or is a librarian). Murders happen "off the page" and the main character sleuths around to help solve the crime. If you have an interest in mysteries, Becky wants to create a list of must-reads just for you! See below for two of her favorite lists.
