The Aurora Memorial Library, in partnership with the Aurora Historical Society, will host a Scavenger Hunt featuring Underground Railroad quilt codes and Civil War era clues. Children of all ages are invited to participate in this program which will be available anytime during the library’s operating hours the week of February 18 – March 2. Prizes will be awarded to those who complete the scavenger hunt, plus children can design their own “Freedom Quilt Square” in the Children’s Area of the library. Quilt squares will be displayed through March 15, when artists may pick up their designs.
In addition, anyone who turns in their completed scavenger hunt form to the Aurora Historical Society’s Abraham Lincoln Exhibit will receive an additional prize. This exhibit opens February 23 and will continue through April 5, 2013.
