“Are you fascinated by the escape room craze sweeping the nation but unsure
how to bring it to your library?” Amanda Puetz of Eugene Public Library
describes how she created an Unlock the Box program at her library, with
all the details, ideas, and practical experience one would need to create
their own program.  Please download and read her new article, “Unlock the
Box at Your Library,” here:


>From Amanda’s article, “Holding an Unlock the Box program at your library
is more achievable than you might think. You need a few reusable supplies,
a set of clues and puzzles around a central story, a space to convert, and an
enjoyment of puzzles. Cultivating critical thinking skills, building
teamwork, encouraging creativity, and exercising good communication skills
are just a few of the intangible benefits Unlock the Box programs offer
patrons. And on top of all that, these programs are fun!”

And see if you can find the puzzle built into Amanda’s article!

Thank you,

Charles Wood
