Padawans invade Parkland Library

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 by ANITA HIRSCH Special to The Press in Local News

Padawans recently teamed up to solve Jedi Quest puzzles in order to be set free from the Star Wars Escape Room created inside the Parkland Community Library, South Whitehall Township.

The “room,” a darkened community room at the library, featured Star Wars background music, and doors and walls covered with hints and tips to open the “room in one hour.”

Star Wars Fans, in grades three through six were eager to take part in the Jan. 20 activity.

Head of Youth Services Librarian Jaclyn Hoimes, had to hold them back from rushing into the room to begin looking for hints and tips needed to open the seven locks to the “room.”
