We want YOU to try out our Harry Potter-themed Escape Room.  Think you have what it takes?  Before we launch our escape room, we need your help to make sure it works!
Contest Details:
We’ve shredded up chapters from one of the 7 Harry Potter books and placed them in two jars: one in Youth Services and one in Adult Services. Come into Hackley Public Library sometime between May 6-24 and guess which book the chapters comes from.
Librarians will randomly draw from the correct answers.  Two adult names (ages 18+) and two youth names (ages 9-17) will be chosen.  Each winner can form a group of up to 7 people to try the escape room with them.  The youth participants must have at least one adult in their group. The trial launch will take place June 8.
