Trapped in the LIbrary with Zombies
The Library has been overrun with zombies. The surviving staff have been injured and need your help.
They have managed to barricade some of the zombies, locked themselves in the basement, and have hidden the only other key on the main floor. They left clues and puzzles behind, so that only your group can find them.
Start at the main library entrance. Follow clues, solve puzzles, gather supplies, save the library staff, escape the library, and don't get eaten.
This program is for adults. This program is free, but space is limited. Call or stop by the main desk to sign up.
