Volunteers needed to test game
The newest iteration of Scribner Library’s escape room/scavenger hunt for FYE classes, “Save Scribbler – Secrets of the Pharaoh’s Tomb,” is ready for beta testing. The library is looking for 15 to 20 volunteers to take part in a beta test from 1 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 21, in the library classroom (LI 118). Anyone is welcome to participate. If you played earlier versions, you can play again this year, as it’s a completely new version. If you’d like to participate, please contact John Cosgrove.
