Bookin’ Around Greenwood Scavenger Hunt
Phinney Neighborhood Association & The Seattle Public Library, Greenwood; 7 a.m.–9 p.m., free: tinyurl.com/yadekze7
Greenwood residents and friends, get excited for the book scavenger hunt! The Seattle Public Library and Phinney Neighborhood Association have teamed up to create an awesome, all-ages hunt around the neighborhood. Over 25 book-cover posters will be placed in local businesses, and all you have to do is snap pics or jot down the titles and where you found them. At the end of the day, submit what you found for a chance to win a gift certificate to a local business. All you need to enter is three book-cover sightings — the more you find, though, the more entries you’ll get. This is a great way to explore the neighborhood and prime for the reopening of public libraries.
