This escape room was created with teens in mind but adults can try to solve it as well.

Register separately for each week (January 5, 12, 19, 26) and we'll create a Storytime On The Go packet for your child.  To arrange for curbside delivery, wait for an email stating that your books are ready to be picked up then reserve a day and time through our website. Packets will be available for pick up until at least the end of that week. 

Have questions or need assistance? Contact Miss Sharon & Miss Sandie at childrens@seekonkpl.org or call (508) 336-8230 x56140.
