Hercule Poirot, C. Auguste Dupin, and Sherlock Holmes. The great fictional detectives themselves would jump at the chance to solve puzzles and hunt for clues to break out of a library!
On February 1st, you can escape from the Calgary Central Library in their latest escape room event—Locked Library! You'll get a chance to explore the brand-new library after hours and see the amazing facility first hand.
This might be the most beautiful library in Canada. The modern architecture replete with organic materials like wood and filled with natural light makes this library one that is guaranteed to be loved by Calgarians for generations to come. You can book a spot to tour the new library for free, but getting a chance to see it after-hours as part of an exhilarating escape room experience sounds like way more fun!
This two-hour escape room event is perfect for groups of four, so grab your friends or find another adventure-loving couple to join you and your S/O for this event! If you love to lose yourself in a good book, then this event is made for bookworms like you.'
Escape rooms have not lost their appeal after firing onto the entertainment scene in Canada only a few years ago. I would love to see events like this in Vancouver and Toronto in 2019. Here's hoping that more libraries and amazing public spaces get into the escape room game across Canada!
The Locked Library event takes place at the new Central Library in Calgary on Friday, February 1 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $42 and all proceeds go to support the Calgary Public Library. This is an all-ages event, but the escape room is designed to challenge adults.
