Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Library Lockdown – How to Build an Escape Room in Your Library”, on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

The story of how our library transformed an underutilized storage room into a zombie-infested escape room. Library Lockdown! tasked a group of children with the creation of their own devious room, full of puzzles and mysteries. Aside from creating the puzzles, kids had to create a narrative around the puzzles and design the props.

Learn about the program we created and how you can incorporate puzzles in your library programming. We will also discuss how similar things can be done on a shoestring budget.

Presenter: Rasmus Thoegersen, Library Director, Morton-James Public Library, Nebraska City, NE.
