The Great Gnome Tome Hunt 

During the month of October, CKPL will be offering a virtual escape room with a twist. Instead of breaking out of a room, the goal is to find a book hidden in the library. Participants will solve a series of virtual puzzles at home and then bring the secret code to any CKPL branch to continue the hunt.

The Great Gnome Tome Hunt is a family activity geared to children ages 8 and up. Start the puzzles here!
