Activity: Library Scavenger Hunt

Library cards (seen in our list of household items at number six) allow you to do more than just check out books.

You can do online research, use study rooms, read magazines and newspapers, and even check out movies and music!

Use your library card for this activity — a library scavenger hunt!

The activity is simple. Follow our list of challenges below and see how many items you can collect at the library. Look for the following items (many of which are also L-themed):

  • A movie on DVD or Blu-ray with a title that starts with the letter L
  • A book with a face on the cover
  • A book starting with the letter L that was published before the year 2000
  • A book by an author whose last name starts with the letter L
  • A book with a blue and/or yellow cover
  • An autobiography of someone whose first or last name begins with L
  • A music CD with one or more Ls in the title
  • A book of recipes that includes a recipe for lasagna

Once you have your stack, check them out and enjoy! This is a fun way to find things you may not have otherwise checked out from the library.
