Your time machine froze in 1923. You are stuck in Orlando’s original library. Using your critical thinking skills, can you solve the puzzles to escape the past? Recommended for ages 13-18.
Taking a spin in that pop-up, time machine was a risky move. Now, you’re trapped 100 years in the past in the Albertson Public Library. It’s the grand opening of Orlando’s new library. You like celebrations, but you’d rather be living it up in your own era. Can you escape the grand opening, or will you be stuck in 1923 forever? Teens will use their critical thinking skills, growth mindset and ability to collaborate effectively, to solve puzzles as a team and complete the challenge. This escape room strengthens library skills, as teens will utilize library resources to solve puzzles.

The South Creek Branch is located at the intersection of Deerfield Boulevard and Balcombe Road east of South Orange Blossom Trail. Serving communities including Deerfield, Ginger Mill, Hunters Creek, Pepper Mill, South Chase and Whisper Lakes, South Creek is the southernmost branch in Orange County.
In October of 2002, the South Creek branch replaced the South Orange Branch which had been located in the Waterbridge Down Shopping Center since 1992. With the completion of South Creek, south Orange County now has a light and bright facility with state-of-the-art technology and services including, 35 public computers, self-checkout, and technology classes in English and Spanish. This facility was funded by the Orange County Library District and a Florida Library Construction Grant.
A special feature at South Creek is the sculpture "Bonsai Study IV" by local artist Larry Jones. The piece won "Best in Show" at the 2001 Fiesta in the Park. The Fiesta Committee purchased the sculpture and donated it to the Library.
