    For ages 13-17.  The Ruth E. Dickinson branch is closing and you and your friends are still in the library working quietly on your summer school project. Mr.Lemoncello has begun his closing procedures and forgot to check the back area where you and your friends have been working. He sets the alarm and leaves for the day. You and your friends get up to leave and notice the library is locked and the alarm is set. This isn’t the first time this has happened, so Mr. Lemoncello has a “Breakout” procedure for those locked in the library that he left near the entrance. Can you and your friends breakout in time for dinner? Registration required.
