As a fun kickoff activity to Western Illinois University's Homecoming weekend, the University Libraries will host a scavenger hunt in Malpass Library on Friday, October 7th at 4pm. The event will be contained within the library and last about an hour. Open to students and families alike, the hunt will encourage patrons to explore the library's many unique spaces while competing to win $100 worth of gift cards from businesses around the community.

No pre-registration is required. Participants can form teams of up to four members, and should gather at the Malpass Garden Lounge near the Access Services desk to sign in and get their first clue. The first twenty participants to sign in will receive a coupon for a free Jimmy John's sub sandwich!
