 WINCHENDON — Fancy yourself an amateur detective? Good at solving puzzles? On Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov. 4, the Beals Memorial Library will challenge you to “Escape the Library.” During the recent renovation of the library, construction workers discovered a rare biblio-treasure buried within an interior wall by Charles Beals, the library’s benefactor. Participants will have one hour to crack the clues, uncover Mr. Beals’ secret treasure and locate the key that will allow you to avoid the cruel fate of being locked in the library forever.

Cost for the adventure is $10, $5 for those under 12. Time slots run from 3  to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday and from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. Advanced registration is requested.

This Friends of the Library sponsored event is a fundraiser for the restoration of the library’s 105 year-old circulation desk. Call the library at 978-297-0300 for further information. The Beals Memorial Library is located at 50 Pleasant Street.
