Hi, Sara, the Digital Services Librarian has created an online Spring/Easter/Passover themed Scavenger Hunt where all the questions can be answered using the library’s resources found at https://www.libraryvisit.org/research/online-resources/ (including the Subject pages), plus some use the catalog as well at https://plymc.bibliocommons.com/. Share your answers with us on Facebook.
Be sure to mention the question number with your answer. Mention in your answers which resource you used, and no using Google! Many questions will have more than one right answer. Let the game begin!
