About The Great Library Card Adventure

  /    /  About The Great Library Card Adventure

In collaboration with the elementary schools of Port Washington, Children’s Services is proud to present the fifteenth annual “Great Library Card Adventure.”  This year we introduce an exciting new way to play!

From April 1st through 30th, children in grades K through 5 are invited to play our new adventure game and help win books for their school libraries.

Children and their grownups begin by visiting the Children’s Room during library hours.  They will need to show their library card (or library card application) and bring a smartphone with any QR app that has already been downloaded.  After they have received instructions, participants will take a stroll through town using their smartphone  to search for QR codes that reveal fun facts and videos about Port Washington.  For those children who do not have access to a smartphone, an alternate tool will be provided.  The adventure ends at the library where each child will receive a gift (while supplies last).  The grade that has the most participants will be the winner!

The Great Library Card Adventure is made possible by the Friends of the Library.
