Library Clue

It’s International Games Week; Join us for Library Clue!

IGW ends November 10, but we’re extending the fun through the end of November.

Was it J.R.R. Tolkien, by the Vending Machine, with the Revolver?

How to Play:

You can play two ways!

In the Library:

Come into the library and scour the upstairs for the clue cards. The suspect, room & weapon not taped up in the library are the killer, murder scene & murder weapon.

Grab an answer sheet for you to keep track of the clue cards you find.

Suspects can be found loitering around the spots where we would shelve their books. It’s important to remember that some authors are located in more than one location.

The “rooms” are areas of the upper level of the library. Please note that you will not need to enter rooms that may potentially be in use by programs, classes  or rentals.

Use the catalog to help locate the weapons! Just figure out where you would find the following:

Here on the website:

Can’t get into the library this week? We don’t want you to miss out on the fun!

Simply scour the website for pictures of the clue cards. The ones not posted with represent the killer, murder area & weapon. When you’ve got it figured out, submit your accusation.


Why not play both ways?! The solution is different.

Happy International Games Week & good luck!
