Mattias and Meikel Hagedorn, 5 and Marin Hagedorn, 9, were some of the children who enjoyed a unique treasure hunt at the Cariboo Regional District Library on Friday afternoon, Aug. 23.
When asked ‘How many places are there to drop off books at the library?’ they answered ‘two!’
Kids answered questions such as, ‘Do we have comics? Who is the children’s librarian? How many computers are in the library? Can you find a book by Dr. Seuss? How many days do you get when you check out a book?’
All participants won great prizes, and after the hunt they enjoyed a wonderful story ‘Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus’ read by children’s librarian Tracy Dunlop and some lively, fun music by Success by 6 community co-ordinator LeRae Haynes.
It was also an opportunity to say goodbye to summer reading program coordinator Jenny Palmgren, who was an enthusiastic participant in the scavenger hunt and the music event.
