HPL Foundation New Host for Fall Fundraiser

The HPL Foundation is excited to announce that it is the new host for the library’s annual fall fundraiser. “The HPL Foundation is honored to host A Night at the Library fundraiser,” said HPL Foundation board member Aron Busan. “The event will be a fantastic evening to experience the Library after hours in a social setting and escape from the everyday world, while having fun and raising money for critical programs and services that are invaluable to the community.”

Now in its 15th year, the mingle murder mystery, slated for Saturday, October 19 from 7-10 p.m., invites guests to dress up, enjoy food and drinks in the stacks, and become amateur sleuths to discover who-dunnit by the end of the night. Tickets will be available beginning September 1.
