Hit the Road to Tour Local Libraries
On Saturday, October 21st, eight libraries across three library networks, including the Reading Public Library, are banding together to put on a Library Crawl. From 10AM – 3PM, library enthusiasts are invited to take a self-guided tour of other area libraries and see what they have to offer their communities. The Library Crawl includes a scavenger hunt of each library’s unique features, prizes (while supplies last), and light refreshments.
Here’s how it works:
-Start at any participating library and get your Library Crawl passport and scavenger hunt list.
-Visit a library, get your passport stamped and take a photo of the scavenger hunt item. You get extra karma points if you tag it #LibraryCrawl, the name of owning library, and upload it to social media. Reading Public library is on Facebook @Readingpl.org, Twitter @ReadingPubLib, and Instagram @Readingpl.
-After you visit your fourth library and show your stamps and scavenger hunt photos to the designated staff member, you can claim your prize (while supplies last).
The participating libraries are: Robbins Library and the Fox Branch Library (Arlington), Flint Memorial Library (North Reading), Reading Public Library, Lucius Beebe Memorial Library (Wakefield), Wilmington Memorial Library, Winchester Public Library, and the Woburn Public Library (temporarily located during construction at 36 Cummings Park, Woburn).
