Director's Note

Our Friends of the Carlisle Library group has so much fun! Last month’s Harry Potter murder mystery dinner was a huge success. Not only was it a great fundraiser for the library but all the attendees had so much fun! About 25 people attended each night and were tasked to find the murderer within their ranks! A great dinner was served (with butterbeer of course) all while enjoying the wonderful Randleman House decorated to appear as the Hogwarts dining room. The Friends worked so hard to make everything perfect. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all who helped with the project. There have already been requests for another murder mystery dinner next year! And many themes have been recommended. Stay tuned for other fundraisers from the Friends of the Library!

Keep an eye out for all the fun things going on at the library by liking us on Facebook! The most up to date information is available- such as information about the Adult Craft Make and Take happening March 3rd at 1pm! Every month is a new project!

Adult Avenue


Every month on the First Tuesday there is an Adult Book club that meets to discuss books from various genres. The meeting begins at 6:30pm on March 7th. This month the book is the Bottomland by Michelle Hoover.


This month's craft, on March 3rd at 1pm, will be decorating wooden signs. You can customize these signs! Feeling springy, need a shamrock to rock your door or a monogram that can hang all year? Donations are accepted for supplies. As with last month, you are more than welcome to bring your own project to work on, in the company of friends and laughs.
