The Carbondale Public Library is hosting a Halloween-themed murder mystery game after hours at the library! The game is appropriate for ages 13+. Light refreshments will be served. Costumes based on the characters are encouraged but not required.
A group of thrill-seeking tourists are gathered for a Halloween night ghost tour. They huddle close together as the howling wind swirls dead leaves around the five historic houses in the square. Four of them are guaranteed to be haunted by murder victims from decades past; the fifth house is where the tour starts and costumed actors re-enact the crimes that created the ghosts.
The Tour Guide leads the group up the dim creaking staircase and turns them loose to explore the upper floor. Screams punctuate the silence as the actors jump out of their hiding places to portray murderers and victims. Suddenly, one more scream is heard and a heavy weight tumbles down the stairs. When the Security Guard turns on the lights, you can see the lifeless body of the Tour Guide sprawled on the lower landing. Somebody has pushed her—but who? And why?
To register for this event, please call the library at (570) 282-4281 or by messaging the Library on Facebook.
