Teen Summer Quest: One Library to Rule them All
Teens 12-18: Pick up a map of Middle Earth at your local library branch, or print one from this page. Do as many of the activities as you can, check them off your list to keep track, and submit them to us to be entered in the prize draws! The more involved the activity, the more points it’s worth; and if you complete all five activities in the same badge category, you will get a bonus entry!
- Grand Prize winner of the Dr. Dre Beats Headphones: Kyla H.
- 2nd Prize winner of the 7th gen iPod Touch: Jakob F.
- 3rd Prize winner of the $100 local bookstore gift card: Matana S.
- Book Prize winners: to be contacted soon. Keep an eye on your email!
Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone who participated this summer!
