The Stiff in the Stacks: Best Laid Plans

Thank you to all who came to our event! We hope you had as much fun as we did setting it up! 

Support the Irvington Public Library and join us for an exciting night of food, drinks, and mystery. Our theme for this murder mystery night is “Old Hollywood, Murder on the Estate.”

Invitation_Irvington

Come to the quintessential whodunit thriller at the estate of Sir Warren Peace and get thrown into a night of mystery, intrigue, and murder you will never forget. With a killer crowd of people just waiting for murder to arrive on the scene, this night will keep everyone looking over their shoulder and guessing who the next victim will be! Bribe suspects for clues and gather information to uncover the unhinged guest who is whacking all the invitees, but be careful, you could be next!

Ticket price is $50 per person and includes light appetizers, dessert, drinks and a night of intrigue! 

Proceeds from this event support the Irvington Public Library.

 

Spelling Bee Update

For the past ten years, we have had the pleasure to host one of the community’s favorite events: the Friends of the Irvington Library Spelling Bee. Each Bee was filled with laughs, teamwork, and intellectual fun for all.

Bee #1!

                      Our first Spelling Bee

However, we will not be holding a Bee this coming January 2017. Instead, we are prioritizing our other fun event ideas!

Check back over the next few months for updates on our other events (or better yet, subscribe to our e-newsletter!) to learn about our opening ceremony for the Pamela Strachan outdoor garden, and community-wide fundraisers similar to the Bee.

Thank you for your support and understanding!

P.S Head over to the “Spelling Bee” tab to view slideshows of all our past Bees!
