MiLibraryQuest: Mystery Edition
6th - 12th grade
Saturday, February 6 at 3:30

An anonymous tip has come in that a thief will steal an iconic Michigan landmark on Valentine’s Day. Figure out who the thief is to prevent the heist and enter to win a reward.
You have two options - or a combination of the two!
1 - Meet with other teens through a Zoom event to discuss the mystery and solve it together.
Saturday, February 6 at 3:30 P.M.
Please register (bit.ly/MPL-TNT-events) and we'll send you the Zoom link.
2 - You can complete the Quest on your own. See the suspects and a link to the clues you'll need to solve the mystery online. Get started here: mi.gov/MiLibraryQuest . Figure out who the would-be thief is and enter it by February 14 for your chance to win a prize.
Everyone who participates will be entered to win a gift card from a local business or bookstore.
