Record Courier Staff Reports

Do you know about the body in the library? It’s the name of the Douglas County Public Library in Minden’s winter reading program for adults. It begins on Jan. 23 and continues through March 3.

Readers must be 18 years or older to participate and must read at least one book. Each will receive a prize after reading one book and automatically be entered into the grand prize drawing. Entrants must fill out a summary sheet for each book read to be eligible to win prizes. The more books read, the greater the chance of winning the grand prize.

The Douglas County Library, Minden will be hosting three major events in conjunction with the adult reading program. On Jan. 27, there will be a group discussion of mystery sub-genres. Feb. 10, is murder mystery night. The award ceremony and costume party will be on March 3 when several awards, including the grand prize, will be given. Refreshments will be served at all events.

Books in any genre may be read to qualify for prizes. Sign-ups for the program began on Tuesday. Entry forms will be available at the Douglas County Public Library, Minden branch, located at 1625 Library Lane, and the Lake Tahoe branch, located at 233 Warrior Way in Zephyr Cove.
