Whether it's solving the morning crossword puzzle, working out whodunit in a best-selling thriller, or participating in the library's mystery book club, everyone loves a mystery! In ""Hosting a Library Mystery"", Elizabeth Karle capitalizes on our delight of the genre through this unique, interactive programming guide. Karle's innovative and interactive ideas will coax children on a quest to learn about pirates, college students to uncover the research tools needed for class, or new patrons to discover the riches of the library's collection. ""Hosting a Library Mystery"" contains five complete mystery scripts, each targeted to a different audience, but all original, expertly created, and thoroughly researched. These scripts serve as an excellent means to acquaint users with a wide variety of library services as well as library personnel, special collections, and research skills. In addition, this book provides: complete instructions for program planning ranging from how to write clues to organizing the investigation; hints for adapting scripts to fit particular situation; and, examples and extras to construct an entertaining event in which all kinds of patrons can engage in active learning. With a one-of-a-kind book filled with creative ways to bring the community into the library and give them an incentive to stay, the only mystery will be why ""Hosting a Library Mystery"" wasn't in your collection sooner!
