This is the city — The City Library, that is. Within these walls you'll find thousands of books, covering any topic you can think of. Sometimes, these books turn to a life of crime. That's where you come in. You carry a library card.

Join other Day-Riverside detectives and amateur criminologists for this monthly reading discussion group. You won't need to piece together the clues to learn about great new and classic crime fiction titles. Each month we'll highlight a different sub-genre, and you'll be encouraged to discuss your favorite reading recommendations. Tea and other cozy drinks will be served, as befitting civilized sleuths.

2nd Monday of each month, 7–8:30pm
