Mystery Guide @ Vernon Area Public Library District

VAPLD Image

The good folks at the Vernon Area Public Library District (VAPLD) have created the be-all end-all guide to mystery literature. They cover every sub-genre of mystery, from Historical to Paranormal, and from Classic to Pet Detectives. Their use of images is awesome, and their inclusion of "Genre Giants" in every sub-genre is super helpful. I'm definitely reading a Culinary mystery next; way to go, VAPLD!

Readers' Cafe @ Montgomery County Public Libraries

MCPL Readers Advisors

The Readers' Advisors at Montgomery County Public Libraries have created an interactive smorgasborg with their Readers' Café. How much do we love this guide? Let me count the ways... 1)They're using Del.ico.us tag clouds in a really smart way, 2)They've got great RSS feeds set up to showcase author events @MCPL, and their RSS feeds for various Book Newsletters are unbelievably intuitive, 3)They incorporated a bunch of other smart tools, including Book Club Discussion Guides, Booklists, and interactive areas where their patrons can showcase their own recommended reads. It's so cool I barely know where to start.

* A note of caution: the MCPL uses Dear Reader to help them build lists of books, so please use their booklist codes with extreme caution!
