It’s the 1920s and the vengeful
librarian has struck again, this time, right in the midst of the annual library

she strikes again. Costumes welcome. Teens only.
Call (626) 744-4246 or email Jane Gov at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Note to parents: At 6pm, the library doors will be locked. Teens can be dropped off between 5:30-6, and picked up at the parking lot entrance at 8pm. When registering, please provide an emergency phone number.
