Our friends at Turner Free Library have created an online escape room! In this escape room, you are locked in an art gallery exhibit and you must solve the riddles presented to find the clues that will allow you to escape the gallery. You can challenge your friends to see who can escape first, or work with your family and friends you are quarantining with to solve the riddles together. Test your skills and visit the Escape the Art Gallery now!
For another escape room, check out the Hogwarts Escape Room from the librarians at Peters Township Public Library in Pennsylvania.
If you’re interested in art, check out the Abbot Public Library’s art collections on hoopla and Overdrive, including Vincent & Theo by Deborah Heiligman, a YA biography about Vincent Van Gogh and his brother, accessible as an ebook through Overdrive and an audiobook through hoopla.
Hey teens! Are you bored being stuck at home with your parents? Take a look at this fun interactive program created by some fellow librarians for Harry Potter fans!
Librarians at Peters Township Public Library in Pennsylvania have created a digital Hogwarts Escape Room open to anyone who wishes to test their skills. Discover clues, solve puzzles, and complete tasks in order to escape the locked room in Hogwarts.
Follow the directions and prompts on each page and pay attention to the details to find the clues needed to move onto the next step. You can complete the escape room alone or with your friends, whether that would be working with them or competing to see who can complete the room first. It is completely free and you can play as many times as you want! Just click here to start your first adventure. Enjoy!
Also, throughout the month of April, you can revisit or discover the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, in eBook or audiobook format through hoopla and Overdrive/Libby with no wait and without it counting against your item limit! And, if you are revisiting the magical world of Harry Potter, try listening to the audiobook as the perfect background to any quarantine activities you are doing.
