  1. Monday Mysteries Book Club (Main)

    December 16, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Library - Main - Community Room

    Love a good mystery? Whether it's a heart-pounding thriller that's mere steps behind the killer until the end or a cold case finally solved as newly uncovered clues start to link everything together, discuss the plot twists and turns with our Monday Mysteries Book Club.

    Titles are chosen by members in collaboration with the staff lead. Past titles have included classics by Agatha Christie and Raymond Chandler to titles by contemporary authors like Craig Johnson and Jonathan Kellerman. The club meets on the last Monday of the month from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the Orange Public Library & History Center.

    This month, we'll be discussing: The Sign of the Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Holmes and Watson’s appointment with a client’s mysterious benefactor leads to a search for her vanished father, the betrayal surrounding stolen treasure, and the uncovering of a secret pact.
