To kick off the New Year, Washington County Library is hosting a virtual author series featuring Minnesota writers. Learn more about the authors and events on our calendar.
You'll also have a chance to find a free book from each of these Minnesota authors by participating in another Community Book Scavenger Hunt! The week before each author talk, we will be hiding a book from that writer somewhere in Washington County and posting clues here and on social media. If you find the book, you get to keep it!
Each week, a book by our next Minnesota author will be hidden somewhere in Washington County. All books will be hidden outdoors. You will not need to enter any buildings or businesses to find them.
We'll add scavenger hunt information on this page, but be sure to follow us on social media to get clues and updates more quickly: Facebook | Instagram | Twitter
