Need a break from your classes, work, or isolation blues?

Our library team has produced another online escape challenge for children, teens, and adults! Test your wits to solve the puzzles and complete the challenges. Invite your friends and family to play, and work as a team or compete to see who completes the escapes fastest!

Don’t forget, you can explore our eBook and eAudiobook collections to access content like The Iliad or the Percy Jackson series for free on your computer or other devices using your library card! To make things easier for you, our website has been tweaked during this isolation period so that your search results show items available in online formats unless you specify otherwise. If you don’t have a card, or if your card has expired, call our InfoService line at 613-580-2940 to set yourself up with a temporary card or update your account.

Now, are you ready to face our online escape challenge! Let’s go!
