Join the Hunt! Killingworth Library Book Cover Scavenger Hunt Is Underway March 1 – 31

Help us say goodbye to winter and celebrate spring with a scavenger hunt!

Your challenge: visit 8 locations in town and look for the 8 ½ X 11 inch “Killingworth Library Scavenger Hunt” sign (there are 7 “on site” and one online location). Each location will have sign with a different photo of a book cover. Write down (or take a picture with your phone if pen and paper aren’t handy ) the book title at that location, and when you have collected all 8, make a list of the locations and titles, and either email them to or drop off the list in the entry box at the library. You will be entered in our contest to win prizes!*
