Children's Little Free Library Treasure Hunt this Saturday, May 20, 2023!!

A Book a Day and the Walnut Street West Library invite you to the Third Annual Treasure Hunt event!

We are so excited to announce that our Treasure Hunt will be taking place on Saturday, May 20, 2023, starting at 9 am.

Using one-of-a-kind A Book a Day maps, children can navigate their way across West Philly to collect treasure (books!) from ten Little Library locations hosting amazing titles. Each Little Library location has new books focused on a specific theme, like Outdoors, Beach, World Languages, Superheroes, Graphic Novels, and more! For the first time, we will also have a location for books specifically for the little ones. We are giving away over 400 brand-new books to take home, add to your library, and share with family and friends.

Your map is above. You can pick up larger, nicely folding, laminated copies of the maps at the Walnut Street West Library; 40th & Walnut Street, Bindlestiff Books; 4530 Baltimore Avenue, or the Family Resource Center at Penn, 3615 Locust Walk, from May 10 through May 19. Or you can download copies here!

Finally, to celebrate a successful day of treasure hunting, come by the Walnut Street West Library, 40th & Walnut Street, Saturday, May 20, at 12 pm to see a fun, silly, and invigorating performance by the children’s musical group Ants on a Log!

Stay tuned to the A Book a Day Instagram for some sneak peeks of the books.

Happy Hunting!

Above is the flyer box at 4603 Cedar Ave containing the larger laminated Treasure Hunt maps and the Little Free Library Box dedicated to Mary Allegra, former president of GCCA.

This library is not on the rotation for the Treasure Hunt this year. But we can always use more books, particularly children's books.

Feel free to leave books on the porch if the Library Box is full at the moment. Thank you.
