This is a big week for libraries, and it’s going to be a big week for the LPL! We will be celebrating National Library Week, a yearly tradition sponsored by the American Library Association to shine a light on the many contributions of our country’s libraries and library workers. This year’s theme is “Unlimited possibilities @ your library.” Help us celebrate by participating in the LPL Scavenger Hunt! This building-wide event will be ongoing April 12th-18th. It’s going to be a little different from typical scavenger hunts, but no less fun. We are not going to ask you to find a discarded road sign or a light-up snowman. For the LPL Scavenger Hunt, you will be asked to complete tasks that will allow you to take advantage of some of our many services. A few of the tasks you will find on the Scavenger Hunt checklist include: take a tour of the Innovation Station, check out a Transparent Language USB, and leave a comment on this blog. Each task earns a different amount of points. Anyone who earns 50 points and follows the Scavenger Hunt guidelines we have established will be entered into a raffle to win great prizes.
We really do want you to feel like the Levittown Public Library is that neighbor who always has the thing you need—whether it’s some snazzy new piece of equipment, a great new recipe, or the answer to an obscure question. This is why we have tried to introduce new technologies to our community, like GoPro cameras, a MakerBot 3D Printer, 3Doodlers, and Playaways; this is why our meeting rooms are regularly booked to capacity (and at the risk of our PR Department’s sanity!); and this is why we offer the Text A Librarian service, maintain a suggestion box that is regularly checked, and keep this blog (which has a comment section…just saying…).
When you stop by with your family and friends this week to take part in the Scavenger Hunt, we hope you use this as a fun opportunity to discover—or rediscover—the unlimited possibilities available to you at the Levittown Public Library.
