February Fun in the Library (PLV)

News Story

Escape the Library, honor Black History Month through QPOC poetry, watch the Oscars, and bust out your board game skills at game night in the libraries to round out the month of February.

PLV's Mortola Library and NYC's Birnbaum Library have several exciting events coming up, first with a QPOC Poetry Hour celebrating Black History Month, then a game night, and later a quest to escape the Library and view the Oscars with friends. Check them out below!

Do you have what it takes to make it out? Grab your friends and put your puzzle-solving skills to the test to figure out how to escape the room, based off of the interactive namesake game that places you in an ordinary room disguised as a mystery puzzle. Participants seek out hidden objects, find clues, and solve puzzles to set themselves free.
