Park View Middle School's library has an extra $1,000 for its collection thanks to a grant from an organization of sleuthy women who call themselves Sisters in Crime.

Don't worry — it's not dirty money. In fact, Sisters in Crime is a collection of women mystery writers, readers, publishers, librarians and booksellers with 3,600 members around the world.

The grant is from the "We Love Libraries!" lottery run by Sisters in Crime. Park View's library was picked at random after the staff sent entered the contest by submitting a photo that includes three books from Sisters in Crime members somewhere in the scene.

Grants are for book purchases only but not restricted to the mystery genre or Sisters in Crime members.

Congratulations to the Park View librarian for taking the initiative! With all the funding cuts, we have to look for every opportunity to put good books on the shelves for our kids. S/he is doing a good job!
