The Hudson Area Library is hosting a Free Escape Room Adventure on Monday, October 14th. After the immense popularity of the Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council’s escape room escapade this past June, Altered Zone NY, the council will host another opportunity for members of the community to get in on the “getting-out” fun.

The year is 2100, and the world is left reeling after a suspicious spacecraft appears in the sky over Hudson, NY. A team is chosen to make first contact, and to craft a peace treaty with the “Visitors.” Unfortunately, due to a mistranslation during talks, the team is imprisoned and now war with the Visitors is imminent! Trapped in an alien crater, the team has only 15 minutes to escape, fix their mistake, and warn everyone before the attacks start. The fate of mankind rests on THEIR shoulders.

The game is limited to 15 minutes, and the team that has the shortest time will win a special prize.

The Hudson Area Library Tween Advisory Council is composed of youth ages 8-12 who create and host library events for their peers and community.

Monday, October 14, 2019 / 11am – 3pm
