Program Description

Program Details

We’re celebrating National Library Week with a scavenger hunt April 24-30!

Find out about some "Novel Ideas" Library staff have dreamed up and brought to life with funding from the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation (APLFF). 

Pick up a scavenger hunt sheet in the Library's Lobby or at a service desk. Then, search the Library for a light bulb shape representing each of the featured Novel Ideas projects. When you find one, write the number from the light bulb on the line. Find them all for a free prize! 

You can ask a staff member for a clue if you get stuck. Bring your completed scavenger hunt to any service desk for your prize.

Ames Public Library connects you to the world of ideas through diverse and inclusive resources and programs. We welcome proposals via our website for programs at and exhibits at
