Escape the Library (Ages 18+)

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Albany-Springfield Branch
Meeting Room
You and a few friends have been studying in the library. Inadvertently you’ve angered the librarians and gotten yourselves locked in their secret room of doom. Unbeknownst to you, Librarians aren’t merely the shushing public servants everyone has come to know and love.  They are actually a malicious secret organization determined to take over the world through information control and brainwashing!  Every time you check out a book or attend a library function, you’re one step closer to being their mindless slave forever.  Luckily, a few good Librarians have retained a small spark of humanity and have hidden clues and puzzles to aid in escape if ones such as you ever get caught in the evil librarian’s snare.  Will your group be able to figure out who the good librarians are and escape, or will you succumb to the mind control that usually takes an hour or so to set in?
