Books Unlocked - Shadows in the Sun

While the sun’s shining, why not immerse yourself in a darker, shadowy summer read this August with a good crime novel from our library collection. From something more light-hearted to the murkier Noir, investigate our crime fiction. Don’t forget, we also have DVDs for those not so sunny summer days.

Bedford and Luton libraries have displays with suggestions to inspire you, or search the library catalogue library.beds.ac.uk for crime fiction/noir/thriller/your favourite crime author to see what we have.

Books Unlocked - 20 years of Harry Potter

This month is 20 years since the first book in the Harry Potter series "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was published. The book was published in 1997 by Bloomsbury, with an initial print run of 500 copies. This title won a number of awards including: National Book Award and a gold medal in Nestles Smarties Book Prize. It was made into a film in 2001
