On September 16th, 1932, acclaimed Broadway performer and aspiring film actress Peg Entwistle plummeted to her death from the top of Hollywood sign. Police immediately ruled the case a suicide, or was it?

Join the CCC Library Gaming Society for an evening of interactive murder mystery fun and a swanky 1930’s Hollywood party, complete with hors doeuvres, mocktails, music, dancing, and Hollywood gossip aplenty. Costumes encouraged, but not required.

Tis the season!

Want to learn how to make awesome DIY snow globes to feature your art & other creations? To give as gifts? To line your window ledges three deep? Join us for the latest How To Tuesday workshop, where we will learn how to make simple snow globes and explore all their creative possibilities. We’ll furnish jars of various sizes, materials, tiny items, and a laminator (for paper images.) You bring imagination, inspiration, curiosity, your own items you’d like to include.

The Aesthetics of Research is an ongoing project dedicated to exploring the role that libraries and their collections play in artistic process, creative community building, and resource-sharing in the arts. How-To-Tuesday is a monthly series exploring the Library's vast collection of art & craft how-tos.
