Escape GameThe library is a multicultural place where you will find many things. And because libraries go with the times, a very popular escape game is on offer today. More precisely two. Candidates can choose between the Guardian of Stories and the "Killer". Both games are based on literature. The goal is to get out of the closed room within 60 minutes by solving a mystery consisting of a series of quizzes, ciphers, mysterious messages. No special skills or knowledge is needed. All you have to do is plug in your imagination, intuition and common sense.
