What’s happening at Carnegie Library?

By Sarah Nichols - Carnegie Public Library Director

Adults! This Thursday, Sept. 21 at 5 p.m. the Carnegie Book Club will meet to discuss “Hallowe’en Party” by Agatha Christie. Published in 1969, the story features Christie’s most famous and long-lived character, Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. The detective, with a little help from a fictional authoress, is able to solve the crime of who committed murder at a children’s Halloween party. This is a great read (or reread) for both mystery fans and novices! Join us!
