Main Library and North Quincy Branch
Come to the desk to get your map, then explore the Main Library or the North Quincy Branch Library by going on a library quest to find clues hidden around the inside and outside of the buildings. Even very small children can explore with an adult or older sibling to help! When you have the answer, bring it to the desk for a prize. New quests will begin in July and August.

Little tiny bubbles? Can you make bubbles with your hands or do you need a bubble wand? Find out if a square bubble wand makes square bubbles and grab some bubble solution recipes to try out at home.
