Those of us at the library LOVE a good scavenger hunt. However, since it's beautiful outside, we want to mix it up.
We challenge YOU to explore Algoma! On the morning of September 25th, we will release a survey on our website with very specific questions about locations around our lovely town of Algoma. We will also have physical copies at the library for those that don't have the internet. The challenge is that you need to go to those locations to find the answers.
Participants that complete the survey before midnight on the 27th will be able to pick up a participation prize on the following Monday.
(Instead of digital scavenger hunt, date has been extended to allow for bad weather.)

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.
