Project Title 

Escape the Library: Building a Better Library Literacy Escape Room

Project Description 

Escape to the Library: A Library Learning Escape Room Experience was a successful and popular option during First Flight in 2016 that incorporated learning objectives tied to the ACRL Framework into a fun, immersive puzzle-solving experience. Funding this grant will allow the 2017 Escape the Library to be more interactive and engaging. Building on the first successful implementation of this interactive learning experience, Escape the Library 2017 will incorporate new props and puzzles while maintaining a focus on introducing incoming freshmen to library resources, librarians and information-seeking skills.
