Palmdale City Library to Host Virtual Murder Mystery

The Palmdale City Library will host a weeklong Virtual Murder Mystery on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube from Oct. 19 through 23.

The story centers around the mysterious death of Director Robert O. Šhüpé, found one morning sprawled by the fireplace. One of his staff is guilty, but which one? Is it Mildred Featherbottom, Senior Librarian? Or is it the new girl, Thursday Addams? Kitty Darkbloom and Basil Butler are always lurking around. Or maybe Trixie Twinkle, the Children's Librarian had it out for him. They all have something to hide.

Each day at 3 pm a new piece of the puzzle will be available. Videos, photographs, and documents will provide clues for armchair sleuths to solve the crime from home.

The first person to figure out the mystery will receive a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble. Accusations must include who did it, how they did it, and how they arrived at that conclusion. Accusations will be accepted through private message on Facebook, and Instagram, or through email to Visit the Palmdale City Library on Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube to access all the clues.

“We are always looking for new ways to connect and engage with our customers, especially while the library is closed,” said Library Associate III Aprile Keith. “We’re excited to see who our customers think is the culprit.”

Due to COVID-19, the Palmdale City Library is not open for walk-in services. Patrons may call the library for phone reference and readers advisory services, or place items on hold online through the library’s website that may be picked-up by appointment. Library staff members are available to assist customers on the phone Monday through Thursday, 10 am to 5 pm, and Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm.

For more information, please call the Palmdale City Library at 661/267-5600 or TDD 267-5167, or visit
