Night at the Library: Downtown

Ever wonder what happens at the Library at Night? Or these days, what happens beyond the vestibule walls? Well, this badge series will take you behind the scenes of all 5 AADL libraries at night to find hidden codes. Maybe some even deeper mysteries will present themselves as the Winter wears on....

To solve this badge, find the game codes hidden in each image. You'll need to look very closely at these images to find the codes, but don't forget to check the hints if you're stuck. Click on the images for a larger version! Then click again to zoom in even more!

Note: Find a word, but it begins with a slash? Sounds like you're ready to join the quest for The Five Portals. The hidden gamecodes have no punctuation!


The Secret Lab at Night. You can just make out the phrase ALPACAYOUABAG

The 4th Floor Staff Area at Night. You can just make out the word CUBELIFE.

The Basement Tools Cage at Night. You can just make out the word TOOLJAIL.

I found the link segment for the five portals badge, but cannot find the code that goes with this badge in the last photo. Too many things with writing on them.

I searched the link with the three link segments, but it led to a page titled Beginner’s Guide to the World Wide Web. Is this the right page?

Just realized I never completed this badge---can't find the regular code in the third picture. Help?

Also another question: where is that moon globe in the catalog? The simple obvious search didn't find it for me.

There are 5 identical boxes on the shelf right under the globes. One of them has the code on it, writing in a place where the other 4 matching boxes don't have any writing. That ought to help. But, there are a lot of things in this photo you won't find in the catalog, because they're not in circulation! This is somewhere between a holding pen and a graveyard. Thanks for asking!
