Reference Librarian Janet Birckhead suggests the following resource for JUlY:

                                              NANCY DREW SLEUTHS

Did you know that 2015 is Nancy Drew’s 85th anniversary? If you are a Nancy Drew fan, check out Nancy Drew Sleuths, www.ndsleuths.com,  the website of an organization of Nancy Drew collectors, fans, and scholars, to find out more! This website offers merchandise to purchase, but there is plenty of information for free as well. The website opens at the Nancy Drew Conventions section. It starts with an article entitled “The Mystery behind Following in Nancy Drew’s Footsteps” and includes links to various Nancy Drew mini-conventions.  Most of the mini-conventions took place earlier this year, but look under “Our Next Adventures”  for mini-conventions scheduled for 2016 and beyond.  The Sleuth Con link will also take you  to information about the major convention held in San Francisco, but this link is outdated.  This convention was last held in 2014.

If you can’t get to a convention but want to buy convention paraphernalia, there are

links to the Sleuth Shop and Café Press Shop.  The librarian ordered a non-Nancy Drew T-shirt from Café Press. Warning: Café Press’s shirts run very small.   You should probably order two sizes larger than you normally do! Returning items to Café Press can be problematic. “The  Sleuth “is a fan zine that is published every other month. Go to the link to subscribe.  The Nancy Drew Sleuth Website link will take you to a site with lots of articles written by fans, collectors, and Nancy Drew experts. If you are a fan, you can spend an enjoyable hour exploring this section. The ND Sleuths: Jr. Det. Squad is a membership-only offshoot of Nancy

Drew Sleuths, for kids 18 and under. Membership costs $27.50 (a one-time fee). The Nancy Drew Book Club link invites fans to start discussion groups in their area. Current groups are in Scottsdale, Arizona; Boston, Massachusetts; and Charlotte, North Carolina. The Facebook and Twitter links enable fans to follow Nancy Drew Sleuths on social media.
