Scavenger Hunt 2011
Looking for something to do? Join our "worldly" scavenger hunt! Each week a new set of questions will be available on Monday at your local library as well as right here on this page. Turn in your answers to your local library by the end of that week to be eligible for a random drawing for the $10 winner at each branch. All entries get a Book Buck just for completing the weekly hunt, too. All answers must be correct on the winner's answer sheet or a new winner will be drawn. One entry per week, per person, through July 30th. All entries stay in the drawing box to be entered in the Grand Prize drawing for a Barnes and Noble 3G Nook e-reader at the end of the summer. Enjoy searching and good luck!
Now you may submit your answers by email. We still want to see you @ the library but this way you can continue to participate even if you're away for a summer vacation or feeling under the weather. Just download the weekly form, fill it out, and either print it to bring to the library or save it to attach to an email. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Scavenger hunt" in the subject line. It also really helps if you tell us which branch is your home library - that way we can send your entry to the right branch. Email entries MUST be received by 4:00 p.m. on Friday - no exceptions! Remember, that is a day earlier than entries received in person at the library are "due." You don't want to do all that hunting and not make it into the drawing!
