Tour the library, have fun, and solve a mystery!

Following the success of the Fall 2021 Mystery in the Library scavenger hunt, we have added a brand new version for this fall. Both the original Mystery in the Library: Mysterious Figures and the new Mystery in the Library: Lost Lecture are now available for play in the Library. 

The scavenger hunts help players learn to navigate the Library building while at the same time gaining basic library skills, such finding books using call numbers, and  having fun in the process. The scavenger hunts can be played individually or in groups of up to five people. 

Students: Are you ready to play? 

  • Pick up a scavenger hunt clue packet at the Main Services Desk (Honnold 1) or print it yourself using the links above. Participants will also need a phone/laptop, or they can use one of our public computers (available on Mudd 2 or Honnold 1), and a pen or pencil. Once you complete the scavenger hunt, return to the Main Services Desk to get a Library swag item, while supplies last. 

Faculty: Are you interested in using the scavenger hunt as an activity for your class (also available for student clubs)?
