Villagers have captured Frankenstein’s monster and torn him to pieces, spreading his parts all over downtown!
It’s your job to put him back together again before he appears in the Lawrence Art Center’s production of Frankenstein.
From October 14–29, grab a scavenger hunt map at the Library Welcome Desk and hit the streets in search of the monster’s “body parts.”
Prizes include a coupon for $5 off a ticket to see Frankenstein, swim pass (for 5-18 year olds), and a chance to win tickets to Science City or the Gottlieb Planetarium at Union Station in KC!
Offered in partnership with the Lawrence Art Center

12 ghosts in 12 downtown locations—it’s up to YOU to protect the city! (But, beware the roaming “government agent” looking to set you back a few ghosts…)
On Saturday, July 9 at 2 PM, you and your fellow ghostbusters will need to solve puzzles to save our beloved Lawrence from a pesky ghost invasion.
The hunt starts on the library lawn and reaches out into the surrounding streets. So, put your team together, bring the little ones, and get entered into the grand prize drawing. See who’s going!
