Online Photo Challenge
Monday, July 6th, 2020 at 4:00 PM
Have you ever enjoyed the scavenger hunts that we hold at the library? How about one that you can do in your own home?
Our Young Adult Librarian has a challenge. She will have prompts for things you need to find in your home. Take a picture of an item that you feel fits the prompt within the time limit, and show Braelyn a picture that fits the prompt. If you don't make it back in time or don't fulfill the prompt, you will not get a point. The person/family with the most points at the end gets a prize!
Have fun and challenge yourself to see the potential in your household items.
(This program is open to anyone and will be held via Google Hangout. Braelyn asks that only one phone is capturing prompt pictures per video: for example, if a family is participating via one webcam, please don't have every family member taking pictures individually.)
Sign-Up will be available closer to the event.
