Summer Read 2014 Scavenger Hunt at the Library

Fox Case: A puzzle adventure based on The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz

A popular scavenger hunt returns to the San Francisco Public Library this summer as part of the summer reading program for participants of all ages. This activity, fun for friends, families with older kids and teens, co-workers, classmates and more, will be held on July 19, 2:00 – 4:45 p.m. at the Main Library. Capacity is limited, so participants are advised to form teams now and sign up at

The Library teamed with Mastermind Hunts to create a puzzle hunt based upon Lisa Lutz’s The Spellman Files. Teams will explore the library to crack codes and help solve this baffling mystery, armed with a set of surveillance photographs and a handful of clues. Wits, observational skills and library resources will be used to track down and uncover the agenda of a mysterious interloper.

Assemble a crack team of puzzle solvers and put on your best walking shoes. This event is free, but you must register your team online in advance. Registration will be closed when we reach capacity, so sign up early.

Mastermind Hunts also managed the Library’s One City One Book scavenger hunt in 2013, and over 300 participants registered and explored the Library and the City, following the clues. Join us for this year’s wild and fun event.
