Summer reading is known for its playful and escapist qualities, and in honor of that, roll the metaphorical dice and come play Greenopoly on the 3rd floor.
Our summer trivia game acknowledges the greenness of our fair city along with the diversity of materials on the Readers' Services floor.
It's simple to play and each week through August 1st there are 8 new questions to answer. That means many chances to win a $25.00 gift card to one of the "green" retailers in our area. Many thanks to the Friends of the Des Plaines Library for supporting this program.
Here are some details.
OBJECT OF THE GAME:
Celebrate the abundant natural and other green gifts of Des Plaines.
The 3rd floor of the Des Plaines Public Library.
DIRECTIONS TO PLAY:
Pick a question about a Des Plaines Park or other Des Plaines location and find the corresponding “board piece” on the 3rd floor. Answer the question and drop it in the TOP HAT.
Gifts cards to Pesche’s Flowers, Lurvey’s Garden Center, Joe Caputo & Sons Fruit Market and the Des Plaines History Center.
New Questions and Prizes Every Week! Stop by the Information Desk on the 3rd Floor for more details.
Greenopoly and Summer Reading Club 2010 are made possible by the generous sponsorship of The Friends of the Library.
