Lazy Days of Summer - Beach Books

Putting a new twist on a great idea, Monrovia Library takes letterboxing indoors and providesclues to find the Letterbox, disguised as a book, on the shelves.

Each clue uses different aspects of the library to get a number or a letter. Complete the clues for the full Dewey Decimal number or the author’s last name on the letterbox.

Once you find the Letterbox, pull out a blank card and present it with your completed clues sheet to the Adult Reference Desk for a stamp and prize.

The Librarian will stamp on the card and give it back to you for your comments and the date.

Return the completed card to the box or give it to the Reference Librarian for other Letterboxers to enjoy.
