Our newest escape room is open to adventurous travelers this holiday season. Call the library to book your group's expedition. Each weekday during library open hours from Christmas and New Years, you can gather family and friends for a bit of winter fun. This adventure should take about an hour. Meinders Elves will keep track of how long it takes for you to find Santa's errant reindeer in Snowed In: An Escape Room. Celebratory Chamber Checks will be awarded to the fastest team!
