Minuteman Library Crawl 2022
Wednesday August 3, 2022
10am – 5pm (except where noted)

A “crawl,” or tour, is a fun way to visit multiple Libraries in your area. Travel from Library to Library; meet the friendly staff and learn more about what the libraries around have to offer! 

We have many different Libraries on the crawl. The challenge is to visit as many as you can and take a picture of yourself with a designated item in each library – it’s a 21st century scavenger hunt! Post your pics and tag the libraries #mlncrawl2022 – we love our social media :)

Each library will have handouts and giveaways – show your pictures to a librarian and receive a PRIZE, see how many you can collect. What a way to spend a lazy summer day! 

All are welcome to participate – children, families, adults, everyone!

Start where you want, end where you want – it’s a self-guided crawl.
