BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY HERE... The North Manchester Public Library is happy to once again partner with the North Manchester Center for History on a project celebrating the residents (past and present) and the town of North Manchester.
THE ACTIVITY Go on a journey through time by finding the 7 historic photos throughout downtown North Manchester. The photos are accompanied by descriptions, a number, and a letter.
Read the description to learn more about the content of the photo.
The letter is an important part of a secret code word you will need to decipher in order to finish the scavenger hunt.
The number will tell you the placement of the letter within the codeword (Ex: Letter A, #4 = The letter “A” is the 4th letter in the codeword)
HOW DO I START? Pick up your Journey Through Time starter kit at the North Manchester Public Library during Harvest Festival or anytime during the month of October at the main circulation desk. WHAT DO I DO WHEN I FINISH? When you have visited all 7 locations and have deciphered the code word, visit the Center for History and present your notebook to the receptionist. If your word is correct, you will receive a special treat and an entry into our prize drawing.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES? We will draw three names on November 2nd. Each winner will win NMPL & Center for History swag bags!
