Event Dates and Times
Blount County Public Library, 508 N. Cusick St., Maryville, TN 37804
Thursday, June 1 through Friday, July 28, “Beginning of the inaugural #BCPLHistoryHunt.” The inaugural #BCPLHistoryHunt is a scavenger hunt designed to highlight some of the most historically important structures and locations in Maryville. The hunt will officially start on June 1 & run for 8 weeks. On Thursdays, June 1 through July 20, a clue will be announced via FACEBOOK (www.facebook.com/BlountCountyPublicLibrary) for the week’s history hunt. Once participants find a location, they will have until noon on Friday of the following week for a “selfie” to be posted to participant’s INSTAGRAM account (www.instagram.com). All selfies must be taken in front of the designated location and tagged #BCPLHistoryHunt. Participants under age 18 who want a “selfie” used on BCPL social media should go to the library with a parent to sign a photo release form. Don’t spoil the fun! Once you find it, do NOT post the name of the mystery building/location! Weekly Drawing: The name of the weekly winner will be drawn from correct submissions and announced on Friday afternoons, along with the name of the mystery building/location. Monthly Drawing: All patrons who participate in finding the clues for that month will be entered into the monthly drawing to be held at the end of the month, on Friday, June 30 and July 28, in addition to the weekly drawings. Selfies for monthly drawings are cumulative, so the more you have, the greater the chances of winning the monthly prize. For more information go the Reference Department or call 865-982-0981, ext. 4, or 865-273-1428.
