Pumpkin Bash: Children's Scavenger Hunt

Ouachita Parish Public Library, Main Branch
1800 Stubbs Avenue, Monroe

Complete this fun, literary scavenger hunt with your child and win a FREE BOOK!
Even though the Library's traditional festival will not happen in its usual magnitude, they're not missing an opportunity to advance literacy. Check off 7 of the 10 items in the scavenger hunt, bring in your sheet to your local branch during the last week of October (October 26-31) and receive a free book (while supplies last).
Have fun! And remember, asking a librarian for help is not cheating - it's encouraged! Pick up your scavenger hunt sheet at your local branch or print one out on their website!
