Scandal in the Stacks

Scandal in the Stacks was one of our reader’s advisory programs.

To attract teens, we disguised it as a scavenger hunt/decades party.

We sent out invites to our regulars and told teens to bring friends.

32 teens; $200 ($150 Skype fee for Ruta Sepetys)


  • Photo Booth
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Skype Visit

Scavenger Hunt-The teens had to find out who hurt the librarian, why, how, and where.

It was the type of hunt where teens were given a clue to find the who, a clue to find a why, and so on. Some of the tasks were to take pictures along the way and post them to twitter with a unique hashtag.  They were given iPads to do this.
