Escape the Library
Saturday, 10/19, 2-4pm, Auditorium: Let’s kick off the Halloween season with an escape room at the Library for ages 11-17. Can you escape from the haunted library in time or will you join the dead to be one of the spirits haunting the place? We will have a 30 minute time limit for a team of 5-8. There will be three sessions, at 2pm, 2:45pm, and 3:30pm. Be sure you all sign up for the same time if you want to be in a group together.
Teen Halloween Dance
