All right! The kids are finishing up their scavenger hunt today and “code breakers” everywhere better watch their backs! The end of the hunt is 3 pm today so kids will still be hanging out in the downtown area. Remember to bring the completed code books in directly after the hunt because at 4-4:30 we are doing a drawing at the library for some more prizes! Thanks so much to all of the participating downtown businesses

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Best-selling author Billie Letts has died at an Oklahoma hospital.

Letts’ publicist, Arlene Johnson, says Letts died Saturday after a brief illness. Letts was 76.

On August 7th and 8th 10-3 there will be a “coded” scavenger hunt at participating downtown businesses for school aged children.

1.  Pick up code book at the Loup City Public Library anytime during library hours Wed-Fri

2.  Solve the codes to tell you where to go to pick up your prizes/treats

3.  Return a completed code book to the library and you will be placed in a drawing for other prizes.

Good Luck and Have Fun!  You are more than welcome to work on the codes in teams as some of the codes are harder than others.  Please let the businesses know you are participating in the Hunt.
