Teen Event: Murder  Mystery Party

Monday, November 20

1:00-2:30 p.m.

Murder most foul! A wealthy baroness has died under tragic and mysterious circumstances and you are cordially invited to a pizza luncheon where her last will and testament will be read….and her murderer discovered!

 Follow the clues to figure out whodunit, but be careful, everyone is a suspect! Upon arriving for the luncheon that day, you will be assigned a role and a script. Keep your wits about you, and you might just solve the crime!

Registration is required.

Tis the season to rock your ugly sweater! Grab an old sweater from home and come us our supply of decorations to make an ugly sweater.

You Are Invited…. to our Teen Advisory Board! 


We have lots of great events planned for the 2017-2018 school year. Want to help us plan those events and come up with even more fun ideas just for teens? 

If you are in grades 6 and up, you are invited to be part of the Portland Library’s Teen Advisory Board. Our board members meet monthly on Monday afternoons from 3:30-4:30 and help us in selecting materials for purchase, brainstorming and running programs for teens and children, and having a lot of fun while making a difference in our community. If this is something that interests you, please contact Jennifer Renk or Patty Ballou at 860-342-6770 or jrenk@portlandct.org.
