THE ‘Antonio de Hilaria’ Public Municipal Library has debuted this week a dedicated section to showcase the undeniable intrigue of the crime novel.
Entitled, “November in Black”, the display gathers some of the most popular crime novels currently in the library and promotes them to a wider audience.
In total, the library contains around 250 novels and videos based around the crime genre, including intrigue, thrillers, suspense and police fiction, and the display will be rotated throughout the month, with new pieces being placed as items are loaned out.
The mayor of the district, Clara Perles, has explained “The aim is to create a dynamic space where books have life.”
The long term goal of the project ‘Cultural Interest Centre’ “is to create a standout genre every month, giving users the opportunity to experience perhaps new novels that they wouldn’t normally enjoy.
In the pipeline, December will be known as “November in White” which will focus on Christmas based material, followed by “January in Green” which will focus on sports and health, then “February in Pink” which, of course, will focus on love and romance.
If you would like to discover something new, the library is open from 9am until 2pm, then 4pm until 8pm and is located on Calle Angeles Navas Atencia.
