Library orientation


The purpose of this escape room is to prevent the mad librarian from stealing a rare book from the library's collection! To do this you must open the lock on her office door before she can get away with the precious volume!  You will be put into groups of 4-5, and as a team you must go to four stations in the library that will each give you one of the numbers needed to unlock the door.  As you go, make sure to pay attention to detail because anything might be a clue!
