Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Join us for our 8th annual A Night at the Library Fundraiser for Literacy.

YOU'RE IN FOR A PECULIAR EVENING

This year, the Hedberg Public Library will become Main St. Manor, home to a beautiful library full of strange and unusual collections. The townspeople are getting a rare glimpse inside the haunted halls of Main St. Manor during the Festival of Remarkably Rare Oddities - featuring items such as an envelope licked by Hemingway, and Stephen King's dryer lint. But the item people seem to be dying to get their hands on is a cursed book once owned by Harry Houdini. Who will be the next to fall victim to its horror?

Guests at the Manor will enjoy a cash bar, hors d'oeuvres, live performances and an interactive murder mystery filled with an eclectic cast of quirky characters.

This event is for adults ages 18 and older. Drink tickets available for adults 21 and over.
