We’ve reached the final week!  If you’re just getting started, fear not.  Everyone will have through April 27 to get all their answers submitted (see previous blog posts for photos 1-6).  Entry forms can be obtained and submitted at either the main library (Adult Services desk) or on the bookmobile.  Whoever identifies the most pictured locations will win the bookmobile for up to two hours at a time and place of their choosing!

The final photo, being out of season and otherwise somewhat nondescript, may pose a challenge, but maybe you know the spot…
