If you like acting and playing Clue or enjoy solving mysteries, the library is hosting a virtual murder mystery on 4/14 at 6:00 p.m.

Please sign up to participate:

This event is open to SUNY Cortland students. Spots are limited, and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

You will be contacted with information about your character about two weeks prior to the event. Please keep your character and details top secret.

You will bring your character to life. Think closet raids and Thrifty Shopper for costumes, camera filters, make-up, and fun accessories! None are required, but prepping for the murder mystery party is half of the fun, and it will help you get into character.

To ensure that all campus community members can fully participate in this program, please contact for questions about accessibility and/or to request accommodations.
