Escape From Oz (Esca
Monday, Oct. 31, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Get ready to Escape from Oz! After a windstorm in Syracuse, you wake up in a bright and colorful world nothing like Indiana! To find your way home, use clues around the Land of Oz (also known as “this room”) to make your way to the Emerald City, where hopefully the Wizard will help you.

This escape room runs from Monday, Oct. 31, through Thursday, Nov. 3, during library hours in the Rosalyn Jones Room/YA space. It will close early on Nov. 3, so the YA Video Gaming group can meet from 4-7 p.m.

The ideal group consists of three to six people; however, other group sizes are welcome, too. Each group will have 45 minutes to solve the escape room.

For information about the escape room, email Michelle at mparker@syracuse.lib.in.us.
