Go Places Scavenger Hunt


Our Barbie-themed fall marketing campaign ran on Facebook ads and in-person at our libraries over the month of October. We were very pleased to see the uptake from library users; there were 687 entries into the prize contest, and we made 225 Barbie-themed library cards for patrons. 

The winners have received their prizes. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to all who participated. Stay tuned for next year’s campaign!


Congrats to the winners of the Go Places Scavenger Hunt! They've each won a $500 VISA Giftcard. Thanks to everyone who participated!
