Murder In The Stacks

Autumn at the library can be a relaxing time of year… until someone turns up dead. In another classic case of whodunit, Murder in The Stacks is back at the Portland District Library! This all-ages, month-long murder mystery program will have you searching the library for clues, unlocking suspect interview videos, and collecting evidence. There are key witnesses and multiple suspects, but someone is lying. Do you have what it takes to figure out who? Put on your thinking caps and head to the library. Patrons will have until Saturday, December 16 to collect their evidence and take a guess at who committed the crime and why. One lucky sleuthing team will go home with a grand prize fit for only the best detectives!


Frosty Holiday Cards

The holiday season and frosty weather go hand-in-hand, and now you can bring a frosted look to your holiday greetings. Using pearlescent watercolors and black cardstock, we will be creating festive cards for you to share. This in-person program will take place on November 29 at 6:00 p.m. Ages 15 and up, registration is required.


No-More-Needles Christmas Trees

Whether you choose real or artificial, Christmas trees are a lot of work. Between procuring, decorating, and storing, this piece of holiday décor can be a real pain! But what if you could make your tree and decorations out of felt? Safe for children and pets, this pretty tree takes up almost no storage space and sets up in a snap. Register anytime, and pick up your bag December 1. Ages 16 and up.


For the Love of Food

For the Love of Food is kicking off the holiday season with a traditional cookie exchange. Bring a batch of your favorite festive cookies and a copy of the recipe to the Portland District Library on Wednesday, December 6 at 6:00 p.m. and share the taste of the season with other cookie loving folks! Registration is required. Limited to 15 patrons.
