There are animal footprints located in various business/school windows in Chickasaw, Maria Stein, and Osgood. Find the 5 animal footprints in Chickasaw and receive a secret code, find the 5 animal footprints in Maria Stein and receive a secret code, and find the 5 animal footprints in Osgood and receive a secret code.
Email the code on the footprints and/or the location from each town to email@example.com and we will verify them and send you the secret code. You could potentially get 3 secret codes. (You do not need to go into the business, the footprints can be viewed from the outside).
Stop in and pick up one of our summer reading mascots today. Send us a picture of you and the mascot enjoying a summer activity to receive a secret code! Then return the mascot to the library as soon as possible so someone else can enjoy its company.
