  • The Witches of Breakout

    The Witches National Convention was held in our room last night! We found out that they made plans to turn everyone who isn't a witch into a black cat or a bat. They locked the spell they need in the Breakout EDU box. The Spell was written in magic ink, and if it stays in the box for more than 45 minutes, it will be cast! If we can open the box before the 45 minutes are up, contact with air will break the spell. Work together to unlock the boxes and undo the magic of the Witches of Breakout! Registration required; limited spots available for individuals and groups. Must register: www.lpld.lib.in.us/calendar. 5 p.m. & 7 p.m. (two sessions) Friday, Oct. 22, Lawrenceburg Main Library. 812-537-2775. Tweens and Teens. Free.
