It's 8.30pm on Halloween. You're at the front door of the original Mitchell Library building and it's locked! You knew you shouldn't have got so caught up in reading that ghost story up on Level 4...
What are you going to do now? Do you take the stairs to the [[Jeffrey Library]] or the [[Burns Library]] or just head straight into the [[Main Hall]]?
Skylights, bookcases, suns with faces carved into them. But nowhere else to go, so you could head back [[downstairs|Start]] or go along the corridor to the [[Burns Library]].This is a room with skylights and various Burns artefacts.
Do you go back down the main stairs to the [[Entrance |Start]] or take a closer look at the [[bookcase at the back|Secret door to stacks]]?The ceiling is made of leaded glass. There's a door in the back wall. Do you head back to the [[Entrance|Start]] or see if the door is [[locked|Stacks at Old Lift]]

There's a lift in the far corner.
The lift doors open, you get in and press the button marked "LG". When the lift arrives and the doors open you step out into a dimly lit area. Do you [[turn left|Old Bindery ]] or [[turn right| Stacks with "keep door shut" sign]]Now that you're closer, you can see there's a door in the wall next to the bookcase. It's not locked, so you step through and find yourself in a long room filled with old books on dark wooden shelves. At the back of the room is a [[massive steel fire door|Old extension Stacks]] You find yourself in a tiled room filled with all sorts of strange items but yor gaze is drawn to a body hanging from two meathooks do you examine [[the items]] or examine [[the body]]
In front of you, at the end of a row of dark, dusty bookcases, is a door with a sign saying "Keep locked at all times". You wonder what's behind it and if it's locked just now...There are rows of dark wooden shelves filled with books. You walk through them to find a massive steel door leading to a newer building, still filled with dusty shelves of books.
Walking through it, you find a staircase and follow it down, winding all the way to the [[lowest basement]] Down in the lowest level of the basement, three floors below the ground, you see...the items are a knife and a book do you [[read the book]] or [[back away]]the man is bruised and slashed beynd recognition he wears smart clothes and a brown apron a placard hangs from a neck bloated and shredded you [[back away|back away]]the blood red text flows down Double-click this passage to edit it.
