Inspired by video game escape-the-room adventures, escape rooms are timed, theme adventures in which players are given a plot or scenario in which they must solve a series of puzzles, riddles and/or problem sets using clues and strategy to complete the objectives and "escape" the room they're in. Kids 8 - 12 years old are invited to join us for a puzzling library escape room experience on Tuesday, July 25th at 4pm!
