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]]. but then you see lion heads carved into book shelf you could ignore them and go to the burns libary or [[put your hand in to feel the teeth]]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 to the Old extension Stacks before you can choose there is a scraping niose a ghostly figure is staring at you he mutters "septimus pit" and the it lumbures forwards raising a bony hand dust falls on you as you stare up the bricks fall your scream is drowned out by the ruble.You find yourself in a tiled room filled with all sorts of strange items...
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...as you put your hand in you feel the teeth but one of them is loose do [[you pull it]] or [[explore the rest of the room]]as you pull it there is a grinding niose as the book shelf slowly turns to reveal a dark hidden room do you [[explore the new room]] or [[leave it]]
