On the Same Page 2020 – Treasure Hunt
How Well Do You Know Your Library?
Friday, February 7, starting at 7:00 pm in the Community Room
ages 12 and older
You’ll be tested tonight as we use the entire library for a treasure hunt. Who will be the first to find the prize? May the best team win!
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.
The Treasure Hunt
I’m sure as a child you always wanted to experience a real treasure hunt. Think back to those sunny days with your siblings as you scribbled on a piece of paper to make your map, gathered your mismatched but exciting treasure and placed them in a box, then crafted little things along the way. Come live that childhood fantasy as we take you on a journey through the library. We’ve crafted clues and maps to test your knowledge of our library, which will lead you to a chest full of jewels, coins, and things you’ve never known you needed or wanted.
I don’t know if you have ever seem a map of a person’s mind. Doctors sometimes draw maps of other parts of you, and your own map can become intensely interesting, but catch them trying to draw a map of a child’s mind, which is not only confused, but keeps going round all the time. There are zigzag lines on it, just like your temperature on a card, and these are probably roads in the island; for the Neverland is always more or less and island, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs and rakish-looking craft in the offing, and savages and lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and caves through which a river runs, and princes with six elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one very small old lady with a hooked nose.
