Ahoy, me mateys! We’re going on a pirate hunt! Starting in June, an in-house scavenger hunt will be available for children and teens during library business hours. Visit the library, pick up a scavenger hunt sheet, and start searching!
Fifteen pirate hats are hidden around the first and second floors of the library! Find them all, record each word written on the pirate hat, and then write a short story that uses all the words. Hand in your completed short story to the librarian at the circulation desk for some bounty and an entry into the library’s Oceans of Possibilities Summer Learning Prize Drawing.
While the scavenger hunt must be completed in the library, participants may take their scavenger hunt sheets home once they have found all the words in order to write their short story if they would like extra time. Completed short stories must be handed in to the circulation desk by Saturday, August 20, 2022, in order to be eligible for a prize drawing entry.
Selected short stories may be featured on the library’s social media platforms; by handing in your completed short story you give the library permission to publish your story online and on the library’s social media platforms.
