Gather a team of fellow detectives and prepare for an evening of exploring, sleuthing, and puzzle-solving in the iconic Calgary Central Library. Enjoy the thrill of the chase, whether you’re a seasoned puzzle-solver or a first-time detective. Prizes await the sharpest minds and quickest thinkers, so make sure you’re at the top of your detective game.

Clear your minds and your palates, follow the secret recipe for success, and see if you can dish out a win!

This is the 13th edition of Locked Library—our most riveting fundraising event! All proceeds from this event will support life-changing programs and services at Calgary Public Library.

While families have solved the puzzles and successfully escaped the Locked Library before, we recommend this event for ages 12+.
