Scavenger Hunt

The summer long scavenger hunt will be across the first floor of the library.  Starting Saturday, June 24, 2023, sixteen codes will be scattered throughout stacks and the media area, and it is your mission to find all of them! Register for the '2023 - Adult Summer Reading Scavenger Hunt!' on Beanstack to participate!

Each badge on the Beanstack challenge has 1-2 sentences that give a hint of where you'll find each code. When you find a sign, type the code in the corresponding badge. When you've found them all, return to the Adult Reference Desk to receive a prize!  

Completing the scavenger hunt also earns you TWO TICKETS to enter for any giveaway you like!
