Stiff in the Stacks 2017

Thanks to all who came for our first “Stiff in the Stacks!” We hope you had as much fun as we did planning the event.

On April 1st, 2017, we held an Old Hollywood murder mystery fundraiser in the library titled “The Stiff in the Stacks: Best Laid Plans.” Participants mingled & munched on appetizers provided by local restaurants as they worked to uncover the culprit of the mysterious murders occurring at Sir Warren Peace’s estate. Check out the photos below to see the fun!
