STEUBENVILLE — Grab-and-Go Mystery for adults starts Oct. 1 at all library locations. Stop in to pick up a grab-and-go bag that contains a mystery book, disposable coffee cup and spices to make a pumpkin-flavored coffee.

The mystery continues inside with a recipe that has a missing ingredient. “Don’t worry — we’ll enclose a clue for you to find it,” a spokesperson said.

It’s “Welcome back, Hogwarts,” as Grab-and-Go Harry Potter kits are ready for pick-up on Monday at all library locations. “Find everything you need to test your magical skills.”

A new StoryWalk book begins at Beatty Park. Starting Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, families can read “This Is a Taco” by Andrew Cangelose. Take children to the main library to pick up a prize after they finish reading the book.
