Celebrating the holiday with an escape room

Those who are looking for a little mystery in their Valentine's Day plans can find it at the Algoma Public Libary. The library will be holding a holiday-themed escape room next Thursday. The room, named "Where in the World is Valentino Cupid," challenges groups of 5-8 to find clues located throughout a room in the library in order to escape. Escape rooms have increased in popularity over the last couple of years, with permanent locations established throughout the state including Appleton and Green Bay. Although the Algoma library's escape room is not permanent by any means, Adult Services Librarian Katie Haasch said the temporary rooms are made possible by an online subscription.


Haasch said the room, in addition to the Valentine's Day theme, is influenced by Carmen Sandiego, a popular long-running video game series that seeks to teach children geography. The rooms run on the hour starting at 2, with times available at 3, 4 and 5 p.m.
