Where's Orbit?

If you visited the library over the summer, you might have noticed our ongoing scavenger hunt to find Orbit. Each week, we hid a paper Orbit, the green alien mascot of the Houston Astros, somewhere in the library, then gave two clues to his location. Those who found Orbit, could report his location to a librarian and put their name in a drawing for a plush Orbit.

On August 6th, Summer Reading came to a close, and with it, the weekly scavenger hunt for Orbit. We had a huge response throughout the summer but, in the end, Luke was our big winner. These are just a few of the pictures from his mini photo shoot with Orbit!

Congrats to Luke, and thanks to everyone who found Orbit each week and helped make this summer so much fun!
