Every Friday the Library will bring you short lists of buzz-worthy books in a rotating series of popular genres.
For these and other fresh reads, stop by the second floor Fiction/AV/Teen desk. While there, talk to a Readers’ Advisor about new and old titles tailored to your taste.
This week we invite you to check out the winners of the 2014 Left Coast Crime Awards. Each year this mystery fan convention selects a clever theme and then honors the most appealing in several wonderfully specific categories. Here are your Calamari Crime Winners:
