Community book cover scavenger hunt “Bookin’ Around Greenwood” launches today

The Greenwood Branch of the Seattle Public Library and the Phinney Neighborhood Association are partnering to bring you Bookin’ Around Greenwood, a community book cover scavenger hunt.

Here’s how it works:

  • Look for 25+ book cover posters displayed at The Greenwood Library, local business, and community windows throughout our neighborhood. See how many you can find!
  • When you spot a poster, snap a picture or jot down the book title. If you have access to a printer, you can print out the instruction sheet linked below. Simply circle the books you find and send an image of your sheet when you finish.
  • Email 3 titles/photos you find for a chance to win a gift certificate to one of our local businesses. Submit 10+ for an extra chance to win. Email to [email protected].


They have suggested some fun activities on many of these posters as well. Feel free to email any of your creations at the email listed above. They will share your work with the community!

The library hopes to see you again soon! In the meantime visit spl.org for book recommendations, to get free digital books & media, and to answer library account questions. Happy Bookin’!

If you are a Greenwood/Phinney business or organization that wants to participate and did not get a poster yet, please email [email protected]
