STEUBENVILLE — Grab-and-Go Mystery for adults begins Oct. 1 at all libraries. Stop to pick up a to-go bag containing a mystery book, disposable coffee cup, and spices to make pumpkin coffee.

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

This is “Welcome to Hogwarts,” as Harry Potter Grab-and-Go kits are ready to be picked up Monday from all libraries. “Find everything you need to test your magical skills.”

A new StoryWalk book begins in Beatty Park. From October 1 to October 31, families can read “It’s a taco” by Andrew Cangelose. Take the kids to the main library to collect a prize after they finish reading the book.

Other activities and events on the calendar are:
