Library Crawl 2017!

A “crawl,” or tour, is a fun way to visit multiple libraries in your area. There are twelve different libraries on the Crawl. The challenge is to visit as many as you can and take a picture of yourself with a designated item in each library—it’s a 21st century scavenger hunt! If you get to at least five libraries, you’ll get a prize.
