Library Scavenger Hunts
See if you can follow the clues to find fantastical creatures, world leaders, famous buildings and
more hiding in the library! A new theme every week!

Where’s Gaston?
Gaston, our Summer Reading mascot, has gotten loose in Grand Marais! Fortunately, the
children’s librarian is on his tail, but has only managed to snap a few photos. Guess where he’s
been from the photo clues, and be entered in a weekly prize drawing.
