Scavenger hunt explores the community

0

DSC_1543This past Saturday saw our Nordonia Hills Library’s 60th Anniversary celebration.

As part of the festivities, we conducted a community-wide scavenger hunt. Patrons spread out into the four local communities – Northfield Center, Macedonia, Sagamore Hills, and Northfield Village – to locate the ten places listed in the riddles they were given.

Our successful and clever winners were the Tedor family, who solved the clues and found all ten landmarks.

Congratulations on a search well done – something we at the library can always appreciate!
