Pokémon is still going strong, and now kids, tweens, and teens can earn Pokémon gym badges at two Garland Library locations this December.
On Tuesday, Dec. 19, youth ages eighteen and younger may visit the Central Library between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. and participate in a Pokémon-themed scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt will consist of eight activities that will help kids learn about their library. Participants will earn one badge from the Hoenn region for each activity completed. Scavenger hunt task lists can be picked up at the Children’s Desk.
On Thursday, Dec. 28, the South Garland Branch Library will host the Pokémon scavenger hunt challenge from 1 to 8 p.m. The rules and amount of activities will be the same as those at the first program. However, the activities will be different and the badges earned will be from the Sinnoh region, so dedicated Pokémon fans are encouraged to attend both events and earn the maximum number of badges.
The Central Library is located at 625 Austin St., in Downtown Garland. The South Garland Branch Library is located at 4845 Broadway Blvd., at Oates Road. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion. For more information, call 972-205-2517.
