Our March-long Scavenger Hunt has begun! Five codes, just like the one pictured here, have been posted around the library. Pick up a scorecard from the Reference or AV desk, and use the codes to answer the five questions it asks you. Don’t have a phone or other device that can scan the codes? Follow the bit.ly link (in bright orange text) instead.
Turn in your completed scorecard for a small prize and an entry in our prize drawing. Fresh codes will be posted each Friday, so you can play four times.
While you’re at the library, be sure to vote in our annual Teen Choice Awards, as well. Get all the details and a ballot from one of the desks.
