NEW BREMEN — Children shuffled through the aisles of books at the New Bremen Public Library searching for clues in the scavenger hunt Monday as part of the library’s summer reading program.
The hunt, open to readers of all ages, scattered scavengers throughout the library in search for clues hidden among the books and magazines. Third-grade student Mariah Parlett completed the scavenger hunt with some ease.
“I went through and found all the papers in the library and at the end I got a cool prize,” Parlett said.
