Culture Quest Begins!

Amarillo Public Library is one of eight Amarillo and Canyon museums and attractions that have joined forces to offer local families a summer-long scavenger hunt.  A perfect way to spend the summer exploring our community, Culture Quest is fun for families of all ages.  To take part in Culture Quest, pick up a clue sheet from one of the eight participating agencies beginning May 18, 2015.  Visit each organization to find the answers to questions on the clue sheet and get the form stamped.  Turn the completed form in to any one of these agencies by August 7 to be entered into a drawing for prizes.  One grand prize winner will receive a selection of items from the gift shops of each participating organization.  In addition, each agency will select a winner from the eligible entries for an organization-specific prize.  For the Library’s part of Culture Quest, you may visit any one of our five location.
