#fullSTEAMahead for More Escape Room Fun

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

To date 43 brave souls have escaped from Mugged: an Escape Room Adventure.

Another 4 groups are expected in the next two days, bumping the total number of adventurers above 75.

Vote #fullSTEAMahead for $25,000 and help us escape the constraints of our limited budget!

Your Votes can help bring more great programming like this to our area, as we will be able to integrate STEAM into the making and escaping of future escape rooms.

Anyone with 13 or older with a valid email address can vote. Even if you haven’t voted yet, you can still get in on moving the grant forward. If you vote everyday until August 25, you can still provide us with 70 votes. If you shared this with just one person and they voted, we could add 140 more votes to our cause. Two increases our level of support by 210. 

We greatly appreciate your support in helping us reach the lives of our community members through a variety of opportunities such as this. Voting for Mienders Library Full STEAM Ahead through State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist program is the single easiest way to financially support the library with a click of the button.

All Locked Up

Our locks for the escape room have arrived! 


Escape Room: a room filled with mysteries, puzzles, codes and clues.

Escapees: individuals who bravely conquer their fears of failure long enough to enter said room and work together to crack the codes and solve the mysteries before the allotted time runs out.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we reveal more about this hands-on entertainment happening right here at Meinders Library!
