A librarian in Pennsylvania is bringing some magic to families at home during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Sydney Krawiec, a youth services librarian at Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, a suburb of Pittsburgh, created a virtual Harry Potter escape room that anyone can access online.
The Hogwarts Digital Escape Room can be played individually or as a group.
In the game, you're a first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In your house common room, a prefect tells you about a muggle trend where non-magical folks lock themselves in rooms and have to solve puzzles in order to get out.
From there, the escape room fun begins. Puzzles involve videos, links and photos.
