Dewey Decimal Scavenger Hunt: Between Monday, Dec. 11 and Friday, Dec. 15 the library is offering a Dewey Decimal Scavenger Hunt in honor of Melvil Dewey’s birthday.

To participate in the scavenger hunt, all you have to do is pick up a clue card at the front desk, then find all the Dewey numbers. Return your card for a small prize. There will be a grand prize drawing on December 16!
