Northwest Room Scavenger Hunt
by TacomaLibrary_NW_History May 24, 2021
Northwest Room Scavenger Hunt
Remember scavenger hunts? Yes, that time-honored staple of elementary school assignments, and the establishing premise of 1936’s My Man Godfrey. This summer, the good ol’ scavenger hunt returns as part of Tacoma Library’s Summer Reading activities.
Complete at least ten of the Northwest Room Scavenger Hunt activities through the Beanstack website or by downloading the Beanstack app to earn badges for searching out the answers to our questions in the Northwest Room’s online photographic, audio, and written resources about our city and region. The challenge will be available through Beanstack June 5 to August, 14, 2021. You can also download and print a copy of the questions (Page 1 | Page 2).
Is your house haunted? Is “Hope Stronger” in Tacoma? What’s this about a UFO in 1896? The answers to these questions, and many more, are waiting for you in the digital collections of Tacoma Public Library’s Northwest Room. Ready. Set. Search!
