To celebrate National Library Week (April 11-17), all of your Onondaga County Public Libraries (OCPL) will host a "Community Quest" from March 15 to April 17.
Community Quest is a literary scavenger hunt with a prize drawing on April 21.
Using clues available at the public libraries, you can help the library discover which character has escaped from which well-known book, and which library was the site of the disappearance.
All correct entries will be placed in a drawing for one of three gift baskets filled with items and gift cards donated by Friends groups, Wegmans, Regal Cinemas, Barnes and Noble, Manlius Cinema and other retailers.
Beginning March 15 written clues about the character, the book, and the library can be found in all public libraries in the county. The clues will change weekly at each library.
The deadline to submit solutions to the Community Quest is Saturday, April 17. The drawing for the winners will be held on Wednesday, April 21 at the Central Library.
For more information about OCPL's Community Quest, visit OCPL's Web site: onlib.org or stop by your local library.
National Library Week began in 1958 as a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries nationwide. 2010's theme is "Communities Thrive @ your Libraries," designed to highlight the role of libraries as the heart of their community. Discover your community libraries as you hunt for clues during OCPL's National Library Week Community Quest campaign.
A clue to get you started is "never out of print."
