Seashell Scavenger Hunt

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

The object of the hunt is to guess how many seashells are in the container. But! We aren't going to tell you where the seashells are! Patrons preschool though 5th grade and their caregivers will hunt through the city to find the location of the seashell treasure. Get your first clue at Cooper Library by checking out at least 5 items and show us your receipt. After that, you will travel around Opelika to find the next clues. Complete your treasure hunt when you find the trove of seashells. The final step is to submit your guess in person for the number of shells to staff at Cooper Library. Every 5 books you check out earns another chance to guess. Complete the hunt and submit your guess by Noon on Talk Like a Pirate Day: September 19. The closest guess will earn a treasure chest of fun. In the case of multiple correct guesses, we will enter the names into a hat and draw a winner. The winner will be revealed on September 20 at 2pm via Facebook Live. Happy Hunti
