"Elf on the Shelf" Scavenger Hunt
Children are encouraged to join the library during the month of December to celebrate the holiday with an “Elf on theShelf” ongoing Scavenger Hunt. This activity will run at the library all month and will give children the opportunity to search and find the elf somewhere in the children’s room. Participants can then bring the elf to a librarian for a small prize, then help hide it again for another child to find. This program is inspired by the popular tale about the “Elf on the Shelf” who scouts for Santa Claus – and now we can scout the library for him! Stop by anytime during the day and take part in this fun event. Please call the Lincoln Public Library’s Children’s Room with any questions or stop by the children’s desk.
