Breakout EDU Games to Debut at Marshall Public Library

Marshall Public Library

A smaller version of the increasingly popular “escape room” games are coming to the Marshall Public Library.


Friday, February 3 from 4 to 5 p.m., elementary and middle school students are invited to try their hand at “Back to Reality: A Minecraft Game” from Breakout EDU. The game features a couple of boxes, five different locks, and a hasp to lock them. Players have 45 minutes to put together the clues, unlock the locks, and “escape.”


Because this is a timed game, players must be at the library no later than 4 p.m. However, an alternate activity is planned for any late comers.


The game is part of the library’s weekly Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) activity.


Friday, February 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., the library will host an after-hours event for youth in grades 7 through 12 featuring a to-be-determined Breakout EDU game. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of this event. Attendees are asked to enter the library through the door on the west side of the building near the garage.


For more information on these events, contact Kath Ann Hendricks, Young Adult Librarian, or Kathryn Poulter, Youth Services Supervisor, at 232-1263 ext. 109 or 111.
