Murder at the Library! – Feb 9th

Not a real murder! But it is a mystery… at the library! On Friday, February 9th at 6:30pm, the Cannon Falls Library will host a Mardi Gras Murder for adults ages 18 and up.

Participants are invited to a masquerade hosted by Marshall Inglewood, the Governor of Louisiana. The party will be held at the governor’s posh New Orleans mansion, which just happens to be inside the Cannon Falls Library. Everyone is expecting an elegant evening with hor d’oeuvres, (nonalcoholic) drinks, and dancing – they aren’t expecting power outages, a mysterious theft, dastardly deeds, and unsavory scandal! Register today at https://goo.gl/forms/JoS4uEs006z6taku2 or call 263-2804 to get your character assignment!

When you register, you will select up to 3 available characters you prefer to be for the evening. The library will contact you a few days before the event to tell you which character you have been assigned. Then you have the choice of coming dressed in costume on February 9th! Masquerade costumes are encouraged, but not necessary.

All interested adults are encouraged to register at the library by Wednesday, February 6th to get a character assignment. Space will be limited to the first 25 people.
