Digital Escape Rooms (Book Edition)

Libraries may be closed but I assure you that your librarians and library staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes. One of the fun trends that has popped up due to COVID-19 closures are digital escape rooms.

Escape rooms are themed rooms that participants are ‘locked’ in. Participants have one hour to solve the puzzles in the room and free themselves. They’ve taken that idea online. These are Google forms that are used like a quiz. Give the correct answer to move on to the next part of the story.

Here are some digital escape rooms that I’ve found online that are book related or based on books.

Challenge yourself. Work together with those you’re social distancing with. Email to all your friends and time yourselves to who escapes the quickest. Enjoy!
