Murder in the Library

The murder suspects

We recently started an annual murder mystery program in our library, inviting patrons to both witness and interact with the drama as it unfolds.  

After purchasing a murder mystery kit online and enlisting the performance skills of local actors and library staff, the program came together fairly easily. The event attracted 100 participants, appealing especially to our senior patrons. 

History Comes Alive

Emily Goodridge Grey talking to kids

History Comes Alive is a series of programs featuring dramatic portrayals of African American men and women who impacted not just Minnesota, but the entire nation. In these programs, historical figures come to life through performances by museum-trained actors, scripted storytelling and the use of props, artifacts, letters, publications, illustrations and maps. The series is offered in collaboration with the Minnesota African American Museum.
