Published on

Books that fall within the mystery category take up a goodly share of the fiction shelf space in public libraries. It seems that sooner or later, most active readers read mysteries. Within the genre, there’s just about something for everyone - romantic mystery, historical mystery, cozy, hardboiled, detectives professional and non from all walks of life, and even some non-human - mysteries run the gamut. And the readers can’t get enough of their favorite detective series. Cecelia Ramsey, Devra Dragos, and Laura Johnson will talk about some of their favorite mysteries, about some of the challenges around providing mysteries in the library, and some of the tools that can help.
