What could convince twenty-two people to drive two hours from Merrill, WI to Manitowoc? When buzz started to build about MPL’s Harry Potter Escape Room, Kelli Morgan of Merrill, WI saw a social media post about the event and knew her 4-H group HAD to attend. The 4-H families had been thinking about trying to plan an Escape Room in collaboration with their local library–and they are all HUGE Harry Potter fans! Kelli contacted the Youth Department and set up a time for her group to go through the escape room and get some advice from Manty librarians.
The group made a vacation out of the event, stopping in Green Bay and Appleton to explore and enjoy the area. Was it worth the long drive? “Oh my gosh, YES! It was a wonderful, magical experience! The best part was watching the kids get into the creative problem solving and searching through props. Loved the music and lighting–it made for a fun, spooky ambiance.”
