Milford Library has several events planned for March

Milford Public Library will present a live production of “Murder by the Book” on Saturday, March 26 at 2 PM. The production will include performers that have appeared on stages with the Second Street Players and the Possum Point Players as well as other venues.

“What happens when some of the world’s greatest writers get together?” Carolyn Tabor, Program Coordinator, said. “Murder, that’s what! This is part of our Broadway @ the Milford Public Library series.”

The play is based on the annual gathering of the Raven Society where one mystery book will be chosen to receive the Smoking Gun Award. Membership in the club is secret and each member attends the three-day meeting disguised as a famous author. The play features writers dressed as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe and more. However, the meeting takes a dark turn when a letter is read stating that each of the members will die. Terror stalks the attendees as, one by one, the letter’s prophecy comes true, making it appear that one of the authors is trying to kill off the competition.

The play will be presented in the Lion’s Club Room. Reservations are required and can be made at

In addition to the play, the Milford Library will present “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s,” a virtual presentation on Wednesday, March 30 at 2 PM. Registration is required by calling 800-272-3900 or visiting

On Thursday, March 31, Milford author Bob Tjaden will present “Beneath the Canopy Part II,” a historical view of forestry in Delaware. The presentation will take place in the Lions Room at 6 PM.
