The Great Gnome Tome Hunt at CKPL

Tiny footprints, open books, and a lot of mess! Do you know what that means? Gnomes have been in Chatham-Kent Public Library! They have hidden a book somewhere in the stacks. Do you think you can solve the puzzles and uncover the secret code to find it?

During the month of October, Chatham-Kent Public Library 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.

The link to the Great Gnome Tome Hunt will be posted on CKPL’s Facebook page @ckplibrary starting Sunday, October 3. 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 8 and up. Contact your local library branch for more information.
