  • You have one hour to escape the library!  Or at least the Community Room of the library.  
  • Clues will be scattered among the books and furniture within the room that will ultimately help lead to your escape.  
  • Work together to solve them if you can or be prepared to help shelve the books!

 

Google Cardboard Virtual Headset Demo (Thursday, August 10 @ 6:30)

  • We have 8 Google Cardboard virtual reality headsets and will be conducting a class for one hour that goes through setting them up and downloading fun apps to demo them.  
  • We will then explore these apps after setting up the devices. 
  • If need be, teens will work in pairs to allow for equal participation.
