And you thought there weren’t any librarian murder stories to read for Halloween!
Here’s Library Journal's review for Killer Librarian:

Librarian Karen Nash was all set for the romantic trip of a lifetime to London, when her partner had the gall to break up with her just hours before their departure. The intrepid Karen refuses to give up her cherished plans, despite the fact that the now ex-boyfriend, Dave, is going too—with a new hottie at his side. Karen finds she’s more than capable of finding the local action when a fellow guest at her B&B dies under suspicious circumstances. She also meets a potential hit man at the local pub, and her B&B host makes it easy to start dating again. VERDICT How can you not buy this cozy debut with its catchy title? Kirwin succeeds at creating a winning heroine whose amateur sleuthing efforts make for a fun, gentle puzzler with a touch of love.

Happy Halloween from NYPL! An artistic staffer carved this amazing Library-Lion-O-Lantern last year using our logo (watch this video of him doing it - it’s pretty cool), and we thought we would share it again. Want to make your own Patience (or Fortitude) pumpkin and show support for the Library? Print out this stencil and get to work! Meanwhile, the Library remains closed this Halloween because of Hurricane Sandy. We are working to reopen tomorrow - in between trick or treating, stay tuned here for updates. And happy Halloween!
