July is WALDO month. The 6th annual Where's Waldo Scavenger Hunt will be running throughout July in downtown Montpelier. Twenty local businesses and the library will be hiding Waldo somewhere in their store. It is your job to find all 20 hidden Waldos. Participants will be entered into a raffle to win Where's Waldo books. Pick up your Waldo search passport here at the library or at Bear Pond Books.
Do you remember when Waldo rode his bike to the Kellogg-Hubbard Library? We hope he visits again this summer!
