"I will be the first one to finish because I know the most about MLK."

Children of all ages are invited to visit any Birmingham Public Library January 3–18 to participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Scavenger Hunt. Preschoolers are encouraged to locate each of the ten hidden game pieces while older children are encouraged to locate the hidden game piece and complete the fill-in-the-blank activity. Each game piece includes a photo of Dr. King along with an interesting fact. Did you know that Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964?

Participants who successfully complete the scavenger hunt may enter their names into a drawing for a free book about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Each Birmingham Public Library will draw three winners. One of the give-away books is the award winning book, Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., written by Doreen Rappaport and illustrated by Bryan Collier.
