Who killed Geoff ... and where? and with what?? That's right, it's a Clue-themed scavenger hunt to track down Geoff's killer this October! Geoff was murdered somewhere in the library by one of the original Clue characters, and you'll need to pick up a clue sheet from Geoff and search the library to solve the case. Once you've completed your clue sheet, bring it to the circulation desk where you'll find out if you're correct. If you are, you'll receive a very special "I know who killed Geoff!" pinback button! Good luck!

The annual Blended Heritage Celebration has been one of our library’s most beloved traditions since 1999, and the 2020 event was the last big gathering we had at the library before the first pandemic shutdown last year. In February 2021, we put together a little online trip down memory lane. Click on the “Memories Under Glass” image or visit http://fcpl.link/BH2021 to begin exploring our virtual retrospective of Blended Heritage events through the years. There’s even an appearance by poet Collin Kelley with a brand-new theme poem just for 2021. Be sure to sign our guest book while you’re there and let us know what you think!
