Looking for an “Escape?” Friday night at #ALAAC2022 is “ALA Play” sponsored by the Games and Gaming Round Table. Visitors can try out all different kinds of games including RPGs, card games, and board games.
Can’t make it to ALA but want to join in some of the fun and games? You can! There is a virtual escape room that you can play to win prizes. (Prizes will be sent to winners after the end of the conference.)
Escape rooms are great programs for public and school libraries. Patrons can learn about different topics while having fun completing them. You can theme your escape room to particular events, books, or activities happening at your library.

Or, if you are ready, you can go directly to Mystery Island.
