Ottawa Public Library staff have been hard at work providing you with the best online content to be found, and we've got a brand new series of activities for you: our virtual escape room challenges! 

An escape room, also known as an escape game, is a game in which one or a team of players cooperatively discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to progress and accomplish a specific goal.
