Dragon egg scavenger hunt underway for town youths
The Lied Imperial Public Library is conducting a summer activity for youths of the community.
It began with the summer reading program which had 26 youths involved.
The theme for the program was “Imagine Your Story.”
All 26 participants decorated a “Dragon Egg.”
Library staff created a map of the town, and the dragon eggs were placed in the windows of 26 businesses and public places.
“The eggs are visible from the outside so no one needs to enter the building,” said Lisa Fortkamp, librarian.
Even though the egg decorating was part of the summer reading program, the scavenger hunt is open to all town youths, she added.
“It’s a fun activity to get kids out to walk or ride their bikes around town and hunt for the eggs. It also lets them practice map reading skills and handwriting practice when recording their finds on the back of the map,” she said.
Maps can be picked up at the library.
The eggs will be displayed around town through the first week of August, Fortkamp said.
