Family Literacy Day Scavenger Hunt

January 27, 2015 will mark 17 years of Family Literacy Day, a celebration of learning as a family. Created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999, this initiative has been embraced by literacy organizations, schools and libraries all across Canada.

At Wellington County Library, our Family Scavenger Hunt is designed to encourage families to take 15 minutes to work together as a team and get to know your library and library website better! The scavenger hunt will run January 2 - 27 throughout the 14 branches and online.

Each week, Penelope Pageturner (pictured above), will be asking a new question for you to answer about the library. Our website scavenger hunt will feature different questions from the in-library version so families are encouraged to enter both for more chances to win! Each week you answer the question correctly, you'll be entered to win a $25 gift card from a local business.

Happy hunting!
