NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.-- There was a sheet stained with blotches of red covering a human form, actually a mannequin, among murder props at a recent New Rochelle Public Library murder-mystery fundraiser.

The event drew 200 guests for cocktails and a "strolling supper" that Post 22 catered.

The library's lobby and adult reading room were decorated with twinkling lights, black-and-red tablecloths, flowers and accessories for Halloween.

A silent auction was part of the evening when local residents played suspects in a funny James Bond-type plot.

The guests teamed up to ask questions and solve a murder.

The event raised money for  the New Rochelle Public Library Foundation, a volunteer fundraising and advocacy organization working to ensure the future well-being of the library.
