Readers' Corner - March 2023

Need reading inspiration? Look no further! Our librarians have created monthly book lists on a variety of subjects and genres, including staff recommendations, book club picks, and just-for-fun reads. You can place holds on items directly from the lists in our catalog below. 

Adult Book Lists

Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month, which commemorates and encourages the study, observance, and celebration of women's vital role in American history. Let's hear it for the ladies!


Genre Spotlight: Mystery

This month's Genre Spotlight is mystery fiction. Who doesn't love a good whodunnit? Browse this list for mystery writers like Patricia Cornwell, Sue Grafton, Anthony Horowitz, Louise Penny, Reginald Hill, and Agatha Christie. Whether you like your mysteries dark and twisty, cute and cozy, or somewhere in between, we've got just the titles for you!



As its name suggests, microhistories are a subgenre of history that focus on a small unit of research-- typically one place, concept, item, or community. Explore some of the weird, wild, wacky and wonderful titles we have about topics you never knew you wanted to learn about!
