Tyson Treasure Hunt

This family-friendly scavenger hunt will send participants all around downtown Versailles as they hunt for clues. Teams are encouraged to dress in costume or in a themed color–bright colors are encouraged for better visibility! Each team must have at least one adult member. The first 3 teams to gather the clues and solve the final puzzle will get prizes. Email tali@tysonlibrary.org with questions. Registration is required.

It’s time to bust out the craft supplies and break through those winter blues with the 2023 Tyson Library Bookmark Contest!

This is our official invitation to any and all local students in preschool through 12th grade to submit an entry for this year’s contest. The winning designs from each age/grade category will be available as Tyson Library’s official bookmarks for 2023.

Need a little inspiration? Just take a look at last year’s winning designs!

Each design can be as colorful and creative as your child wants to make their design – we want the students to have fun and show us what they think of when it comes to books and the joy of reading.

We will celebrate this year’s winners during National Library Week (April 23-29) with a reception for the winners and their families at the Tyson Activity Center.


Rules:

  • Design MUST fit in a space 8 inches by 2 inches (like the box included on the printable form)
  • Limit 1 drawing per person
  • Designs can be hand or computer drawn in color or black & white using ink, crayon, paint, or other media. (Note: pencil drawings are often not reproducible, thus NOT accepted.)
