Searching for Pokemon? Search for a hidden book, too!

By MPL Staff on Jul 19, 2016 12:04 PM

A book scavenger hunt is happening in Bay View and a fifth copy of Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman has been hidden.  This time the book is in a Little Free Library That looks like a school bus.  It is one of two free libraries located at a house on the corner of a state street that starts with a “D” and a street that in Morse code is:

. ... - . ...

If you find the book, please report it found at Book Scavenger.  After you've read the book, hide it again so more people can take part in the scavenger hunt.  Happy hunting!

The fourth copy of Book Scavenger that was hidden by the Bay View Community Center was found and so has The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Dicamillo that was in the Little Free Library on Gauer Circle.

On August 15 at 6 pm, the Bay View Library will have a family book discussion with activities based on the book, Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman.

Book Scavenger is about an online book scavenger hunt so copies of Book Scavenger as well as other books will be hidden around Bay View this summer with clues as to their location appearing on this blog as well as Book Scavenger. Sometimes Book Scavenger takes a while to update, so if you don’t see it there at first, check back.
