Donation Adds More Mystery! DVDs

Good news for PBS Mystery! fans. The fantastic friends and family of Margaret "Peggy" Henderson donated to the library in her memory. Mrs. Henderson was a devotee of Mystery!--it was strongly preferred that no one call or otherwise interrupt her once that Edward Gorey animation started rolling.

Thanks to the generosity of her friends and family, the library has recently ordered and acquired the following DVD collections:

Inspector Lewis: Series 1 & Series 2
Inspector Morse Dead on Time collection set
The Complete Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes Series: Volume 1 & Volume 2
Midsomer Murders Set 1, including Beyond the Grave, Blood Will Out, Death's Shadow, Strangler's Wood
The Moonstone
Mrs. Bradley Mysteries
P. D. James The Murder Room (still on order at the moment)
Poirot: The Classic Collection (Sets 1-4, 5-8, 9-12)

This is an excellent addition to our DVD collection, and should especially please those of you who've wanted us to replace our Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes VHS tapes.

Thanks again to those who donated in memory of Peg Henderson, and made more materials available to the Urbana community.

Peggy was a wonderful woman who I remember fondly from League of Women Voters. I'm glad the library got to benefit from her friends' and family's generosity.
