#ReadingMyLibrary challenge – Library Scavenger Hunt!

rmlc-komika

So! As part of the #ReadingMyLibrary challenge, the hosts came up with the brilliant idea to organize a library scavenger hunt! I completed the scavenger hunt at the Terryville Public Library today with my mom. So here are the guidelines for the library scavenger hunt. If you want to participate in the giveaway, please find at least TEN (10) of the following things in your library. If you are unable to find ten of these things, leave a note in your post explaining that. This scavenger hunt was great fun! I used to work at the Terryville Library so it was a little easier for me since I already knew where most things were and from shelving books for 5 years I could think of a few different books to meet the requirements needed. Everyone should try this, it is a great way to get to know your library better!

Make a post on your blog (or Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc) with pictures of the following things:

  • Your library
  • Library Card
  • Old School Card Catalog (we know that not all libraries have one of these, so take a picture of the catalog on a computer instead!)
  • Your Librarian / Circulation Clerk (ask nicely and I’m sure they’ll let you!)
  • Date Stamper
  • Bookmark
  • An audio book
  • A DVD
  • Withdrawn or discarded book (can be controversial, but a part of a book’s life at a library.  Most end up for sale)
  • Fun library furniture
  • Your favorite library book (could be broken down into F, NF, YA, JF/MG, E, etc)
  • A large print book
  • Your library’s event calendar
  • Flyer for an upcoming event
  • A fun display
  • A book from the 800 non-fiction section (a book categorized in the 800s of the Dewey Decimal System)
  • A set of encyclopedias
  • Newspaper/Magazine
  • A graphic novel
  • Fun round (take a picture with all these books together – make sure you take the stack up to the circ desk when you’re done so they can in-house the books!):
  • Find a book with a girl in a dress on the cover
  • Find a book that’s green
  • Find a book with an author who has the same initials as you
  • Find a book with a number in the title
  • Find a cookbook
  • Find a picture book
  • Find a book with a picture of someplace you would like to visit
  • Find a book with more than eight (8) words in the title
  • Find a book with a one (1) word title
  • Find a book about libraries or with the word library in the title
  • Find a book with a duck on the cover

Here is a gallery with all the items from the list I found in my library!
