Fremont County Library – Lander held its 3rd Annual Murder Mystery night. “Once Upon a Murder,” on Friday, October 27 in the library’s Carnegie Room. It was a timeless tale of treachery and treason in a kingdom far, far away. Library staff report that it proved to be a hoot!

“We already have people asking about next year’s event,” said Tasha Reeves, Librarian Assistant. “The first year we did ‘Murder at the Deadwood Saloon,’ and last year was ‘Murder Among the Mateys.’ Each year gets wilder and crazier than the last!”

The event has been successful for the library. This year’s murder mystery drew 45 participants and 11 guests. “We’ve had more than 50 signups every year,” Tasha said. “It brings folks to the library that don’t normally come our way. One of the most recurring comments that I’ve heard is that participants met others from the community that they never knew and have remained friends.”
