Meeting Room A

Join the discussion of The Midnight Lock, which is our Once Upon a Crime Mystery Book Club selection for September. Pick up a copy at the Highland Branch.

A woman awakens in her Manhattan apartment to find that her personal items have been rearranged. Police dismiss her complaint: Nothing was stolen, there's no sign of breaking and entering. When the woman turns up dead, Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are brought in to investigate the murder. The murderer calls himself "the Locksmith" and is obsessed with locks, slipping into homes in the dead of night and tying his victims up with knots or locks, ultimately strangling them. When an internal investigation in the police force uncovers what seems to be a crucial mistake in one of Rhyme's previous cases, he is removed from the case, and must investigate the Locksmith in secret.

About the branch

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a small group room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
