Get A Clue! Look For A Mystery At The Library

July 20, 2007

Get A Clue! is the theme for the Library’s Summer Reading Program. There are more than 2,200 detective and mystery stories available through the Library for kids to enjoy and thousands more in the young adult and adult collections. Reading mysteries is a great way for kids to begin honing their observation and puzzle-solving skills. The ever-popular Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series are just the tip of the iceberg. Don’t forget to include the Encyclopedia Brown, Sammy Keyes, Nate The Great, Miss Pickerell, Sebastian (super sleuth) and Cam Jansen series. Some of our favorites include Alvin’s Secret Code, The Long Secret, The Westing Game and The Eleventh Hour. Last, but in no way least, we highly recommend the Sherlock Holmes stories as well as those of the best-selling mystery author of all time–Agatha Christie.
