Summer Library Challenge

Have you entered the Teen Photo Scavenger Hunt yet? Solve clues and take pictures around the Library or Morton Grove and we'll post them on Flickr!

You can pick up a packet of information in the Teen Zone or at the Reference Desk and join in the fun. When you turn in your entry form, you'll receive a checklist of clues to solve. You can play either the "Village of Morton Grove Edition" or the "Morton Grove Public Library Edition." Each checklist will lead you to specific places. Take pictures of yourself at each spot and when you email them in, we'll post them on the Library's Flickr page! Everyone who participates will receive a small prize and can count the Teen Photo Scavenger Hunt as a program for the Summer Library Challenge. Happy hunting!
