We like to have fun at the library. And a big part of that has been our summer student, Emma, and her creative talents that keep our young patrons happy and coming back for programs. So this week, we thought we’d challenge her to a little bit of crazy we’re calling the first ever “Carleton Place Public Library Great Scavenger Hunt for Emma!”
She has a list of items to try to complete this week, and so far, she’s done such an amazing job, I’m wondering why we haven’t done this in the past!
First up this week, she created a Twitter account for a sparkly stapler that gets a lot of attention at the library. If you tweet, give it a follow. It’ll be fun, I’m sure!
Next, she was challenged to create a stained glass window craft (because she’s so crafty with the kids!), that featured a character either from THE LORD OF THE RINGS, or ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. We came into work and found this lovely taped to the window!
But the topper on Monday was her challenge to drive through the local Tim Hortons to pick up some timbits for the library. Sounds easy, right? Not even close! Her challenge was to order in the form of a Shakespearean sonnet, and she’d get bonus points if it rhymed. She even managed to get her brother to help, giving him the cinematography credit on this great video. Check out this great link to watch the video, and be ready to laugh!
It’s going to be a fun week. Keep an eye on our Facebook page if you want to see more!
