As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, the Thomas J. Garland staff implores you to face the monsters that appear on this most auspicious evening by participating in our annual Monster Hunt.
Do you dare to take the challenge by naming what monsters may lurk in the night? Take a bounty contract from the tree and conduct some research to see if you can name the monster described. If you think you have found the name of the creature, tell a staff member at the Circulation desk. If you are correct, you will receive some monster bait (prize bag). Be cautious, as some of these creatures are crafty and hard to find.
Good luck and be safe!
A few rules for Monster Hunting:
- One Monster per student.
- You may team up and help each other with the research.
- You may ask the Master Sorcerers (librarians) for help with the searches.
- When you have completed your search, return the scroll you chose to the Circulation Desk. DO NOT throw them away.
- Be polite to others when they are searching. Don’t ruin the search by telling someone the answer if you know it and they do not.
- Remember to have fun!!!

The dragons have began their annual migration. A few got lost in the library, though, and need help finding their way back home. That’s where you come in! If you find an origami dragon, you are welcome to keep it and give it a home or return it to the Circulation desk to join its friends. Some may even reward you for your efforts.
