Escape — literally — at Briggs libraries

March 21, 2019 GMT

Kids — can you break out of the Escape Room for Kids at the library?

This past Saturday, Briggs Lawrence County Public Library hosted the first of three Escape Room events for kids at the Chesapeake library. Thirty children from elementary through high school age had fun solving a series of puzzles to find the key to unlock the “door” to the room.

The next Escape Rooms for Kids programs are scheduled on Saturday, March 30, at the South Point library and Saturday, April 13, at the Ironton library. Groups of up to five kids from ages 8 to 17 are invited. The 30-minute time slots start at 10:30 a.m. with the last slot at 2:15 p.m. Times must be reserved, so join the fun by calling South Point at 740-377-2288 or Ironton at 740-532-1124.

The programs are practice runs for outer space-themed escape rooms planned for the 2019 Summer Reading Club. Summer Reading Club sign-ups and events start in June.
