Fairy Tale Family At-Home Escape Room
Begins July 1st!
The Wizard of Fairytale Kingdom has been captured and it’s your job to help him escape!
This at-home escape room, provided by MobileQuest, can be done in the comfort of your own living room and is designed to be completed in approximately 60 minutes. Clues vary in levels so everyone can be part of the action.
The Fairy Tale Escape Room kit may be checked out for 3 days with a Newport Public Library Card. The kit must be returned to the Newport Public Library during regular Library hours. No book drops, please!
For more information, visit the Children’s Desk or call 401-847-8720 ext. 204.
