2014 Super Scavenger Hunt!

Over 300 new students participated in the 2nd annual Super Scavenger Hunt Monday, Aug. 25! 

Students roamed the library in groups following video and text clues embedded in QR codes. Using their smart phones they took pictures and sent answers by email to the library and  by hashtags to the library's Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The scavenger hunt is an opportunity for new students to be in the library, meet a librarian, gain a basic understanding of the library layout and to feel welcome in our space.  We're looking forward to next year!
