One Killer Evening in the Library

On Friday, March 15, Elkhart Public Library will be the scene of a celebration. But this unique dinner event between friends old and new will be interrupted in a startling way – you may be the person to solve the crime, or you may be found to have been the killer.

This murder mystery dinner will serve as a fundraiser to improve Elkhart Public Library's local history section. Librarians will be buying new ViewScan equipment and other archival supplies. The improvement project is expected to cost between $8,000 and $10,000.

Each $50 ticket includes admission to the murder mystery event, with one Italian-style buffet dinner and dessert. Attendees are asked to give their age range and gender for the purposes of receiving their character biography from entertainment group Murder By Design, the event planner.

To ensure character development is the best it can be, please purchase dinner tickets by Friday, March 8.

A physical ticket will not be required for entry.
