MGCC Presents the

Little Free Library Tour

Wednesday, August 9th – Saturday, August 26, 2023

The Macalester-Groveland Community Council presents an all-ages book search event touring the little free libraries of the neighborhood. This program encourages reading & outdoor exercise while highlighting the novel character in our community. We aim to spark curiosity, adventure, and explorative learning through this playful, self-guided tour.

How to participate

Bookmark Hunt

Find the bronze, silver, or gold bookmark at one of the designated Little Free Libraries using clues that will be released on our website and social media! If you find one of the three, you will win a prize. You may have to visit all the libraries to find the bookmark or you may luck out and find it on the first one! If you are the first one to find it, send a picture and the location of the hiding spot to mgcc@macgrove.org to claim a gift card prize. (One individual can only win one prize in the bookmark hunt so we can share the fun with more folks!) 

Update: The bronze bookmark has been found at Hidden Rivers Middle School! Congratulations Natalie!

Bronze Bookmark Clue: I am hidden amongst the books as you will soon learn. When you find me, a prize is what you’ll earn. It’s best to go-with-the-flow to discover where I am hiding out. But don’t forget to watch for cars when you are en route.

Update: The silver bookmark has been found at 133 Woodlawn Avenue! Congrats Michael and Claire!

Silver Bookmark Clue: I would tell you my hiding spot if I could, however in order to decipher this clue you’ll have to look to the woods. Start with the Little Free Library where you feel most drawn, and eventually you’ll find me in box on the lawn.

The gold bookmark clue will be released on August 23rd.

Word Searches
