Each Mother Goose rhyme will give you a clue to the treasure you seek.

Old Mother Hubbard, went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone,
When she got there, the cupboard was bare.
So the poor little doggie had none.

Hickory dickory dock,
The mouse ran up the clock,
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory dickory dock.

Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home.
Your house is on fire,
And your children are alone.

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.

Walk through the door and look to the right.
You’ll see a girl and her dad in reading delight.

Along the way, they’ll see many new faces.

They could get there by land or by sea.
The first one sounds better, if you ask me!

All Aboard!

The “Swamp Rabbit Express” is about to depart.

You’ve read about these book characters, but now let’s learn more about them by taking a look at nonfiction books. You will need a number to know where to find these books.

¡Hola! Vamos practicar español. Let’s practice Spanish! You may need a “diccionario” to help you solve the clues. As you enter the “biblioteca” find the Children’s Spanish section. Look at all of the “libros” and “películas.” “¡Muy Bien!” Now find the books with the call number “nueve-siete-dos.” In these countries, the people speak español. Next, you will need to find a “mapa” of these countries.

Let’s practice what we’ve learned. We have found the “libros” and “películas” and we have found some countries that speak español and where they are located on the “mapa.” Now find a “periódico en español” called "People en Espanol." Look below "People en Espanol" to the bottom shelf to find the “caja.”

The Bookmobile
(see schedule of stops and times at
http://www.greenvillelibrary.org/index.php/Branches/Bookmobile.html)


One year later, the bookmobile finally stayed still long enough to get a letterbox. You will need to locate the bookmobile by going to www.greenvillelibrary.org. It has 2 routes that alternate each week.

Once you locate the vehicle that is basically a library on wheels, you will want to enter the front side door. You will see two librarians at two computer stations. You will also be facing shelves of books, DVDs, and videos. In the row of videos, you will want to find the one labeled "Stamp in Here".
That's all you need.

Please let the librarians know what you are doing if you want to leave the vehicle to stamp in. Return it to the shelf where you found it.

(Thanks to a special patron, Paula, for her help with the Bookmobile box!)
