NYLI’s Director of IT, Ellyssa Kroski has just published a book with the ALA titled Escape Rooms and Other Immersive Experiences in the Library in which NYLI events are prominently featured. The book discusses the Alexander Hamilton-themed escape room titled “The Search for Alexander Hamilton and the Missing Librarian” which we designed and hosted for members for April’s National Library week this year as well as the “Treasures and Technology of the New York Law Institute” augmented reality rare book event we presented the year before.  Read the full press release here.

Ellyssa was also recently interviewed by the American Library Association in the article Ellyssa Kroski on why escape rooms and other immersive experiences make for great library programs.
