Around Town Scavenger Hunt

It’s Showtime At Your Library! Join the DeKalb Public Library for spectacular events, fun activities, and, of course, lots of good reading!

This summer, a NEW addition to our programs is the Around Town Scavenger Hunt. Each week, the library will post clues at the library and in local media. Solve the clues, and they will lead you to one place in DeKalb. Once you get to the place, take a picture with our clapboard or grab a ticket if you don’t have a camera. If you visit at least 5 of the places, you’ll be entered into a prize drawing!

We’ll also be giving out a prize for the best selfie, so be creative with those pictures. If you post your selfie on social media please tag the library and the local business/organization that you took the picture at.

Here is the clue to the first location (June 16-22):

“When the weather gets hot and you want to stay cool; you can catch the next ticket when you visit the pool.”

Visit this location between June 9-15 on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between the hours of 3:00—6:00 p.m. Look for upcoming clues on the library’s social media and possibly in the newspaper each week.
