History and Escape Room at North Webster Public Library – InkFreeNews.com
NORTH WEBSTER — Many know who Kosciusko County was named for, but few know the potential controversy behind that choice. At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, the public is invited to join Faye Myers of the Kosciusko County Historical Society as she presents a brief history of Kosciusko County.
Myers will not only explain the arguably sneaky way the county got its name, she’ll describe many other memorable aspects of its history.
September 19 kicks off Forbidden Books Week and NWCPL invites teens and adults to put their brains to the test with a themed escape room.
Five time slots are available throughout the week, with the possibility of adding others if the existing ones fill up. The 45-minute escape room features clues and puzzles that revolve around banned books and authors, many of which may surprise participants.
