Teen Online Programs

    • Escape Room – The Commute
      The Commute (a digital escape room to play at home)
      Solve each puzzle in order to move to the next lock. One hint: Look at what the lock is asking you to find before you read the clue — numbers, shapes, directions, colors, or letters. There’s no penalty for multiple guesses. You’ll need to visit some websites like tourist sites in San Francisco, the BART system page, in order to find the answers. Good luck!
      Keep track of your time, and print out the sign or take a picture of the congratulations page at the end to show you completed it. Share it with Batavia Public Library through Facebook or Instagram!
