Gnorm is a lovable, friendly gnome who lives under Miss Valerie’s desk at the Pleasant Valley Library. Maybe you’ve paid him a visit at one time or another? Often you can catch him gardening, reading a book or just relaxing on his beach blanket. He’s usually content to just hang out there and watch all the people go by with their arms full of books. Such fun!! But sometimes, every now and then, Gnorm gets a little mischievous. And now he has locked the doors and stolen the key! Can you make it through our digital escape room to find Gnorm and be able to unlock the doors?
