Fifty kids were locked in our Main Branch on Friday night, and the only way for them to escape was to solve a series of puzzles.
They split into five groups—The Boxcar Children, Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Cam Jansen, and Nate the Great—and raced to complete our nine challenges.
They scoured our shelves for clues, completed puzzles and quizzes, and even made some pretty sand art.
After the completed each challenge, they received a clue. At the end, they used all of their clues to find their escape route.
Don’t worry. They all made it home safe. They even got pizza for their efforts.
