Discover Russell Library...with Shakespeare! A Scavenger Hunt!

One of the signs for the scavenger hunt.
The Shakespeare Scavenger Hunt at Russell Library begins today and runs through the month of January! Play to receive a stamp in the Shakespeare 400 Passport, and/or a voucher for a free book from one of the Friends' Book Sales.
What do you need to do?
Ask for a clue sheet, available at the Check-in Desk and at the upstairs Information Desk.
Each of the ten clues leads you to a place in the library where a sign gives you a quote from one of Shakespeare's plays. Write the play, act and scene listed in bold on the sign. When you've completed the clue sheet, you can turn it in at the upstairs Information Desk for your prize.
