Application materials will be available on our website, at the front desk, at the Youth Services desk, and at the drive-thru window.
Patrons are invited to pick up a murder mystery box which contains an entire story and all of the clues within it. This special box comes to you from the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece. Within it are the clues to a bitter betrayal and a subsequent murder. Madame Phoebe, the museum's benefactor of a new mythology exhibit, was gifted this box which contains clues to terrible secrets. Upon opening the box, Madame Phoebe was tracked down and killed. Before her demise, she sent the box to the only place she could think of; a public library. She hopes that a clever reader such as yourself will uncover the truth and bring her killer to justice.
Pick up the box at the Library either at the drive-thru window or at the front desk.
