For one night each semester, the Wilson Special Collections Library comes to life in a new way as Carolina students take part in a live-action game of Clue. To solve the evening’s mystery, each team will need to explore the library and gather information from some familiar faces. 

Clue will return to Wilson Library in Spring 2024. In the meantime, you can get a peek at the action with photos from the October event!
