Novel Night 2018

What is Novel Night?

Please join us for our very first Novel Night on September 1st, 2018 from 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM inside the Longview Public Library's Junior League of Longview Rotunda! Doors will open at 7:00 PM. Novel Night is a fun, exclusive fundraiser for the Friends of the Longview Public Library to provide funding for future Library programs, materials, and services! This year, we are transporting you to a tropical paradise and stopping in Margaritaland for a special Murder Mystery event! While solving the Margaritaland mystery, you will be treated to Ray's Island Sounds as he plays the steel drums, and will be entertained by the Grace Hula Dance and Fire Company outside on our Eastman Plaza! We will have heavy hors d'oeuvres, margaritas (of course), beer, and wine! There will also be a silent auction from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Tickets are available for purchase on Eventbrite and at the Longview Public Library! Must be 21 and up to purchase tickets and attend.
