Fantastic Beasts Scavenger Hunt

Harry Potter Book Night is back, and we can't contain all that Harry Potter fun to one day, so we're celebrating a whole week of Harry Potter! Journey around the Dallas Public Library system and take part in some of our many Harry Potter themed programs happening all around Dallas, and take part in our scavenger hunt! Participants who find all the beasts hidden in the libraries will be entered into a drawing to win prizes!

Starting February 1, your local Dallas Public Library branches will each have 1 awesome Fantastic Beast poster featuring a mythical creature/monster and a clue as to where you can find this creature in the library. Hidden somewhere in the library is a sticker with the featured beast scan the QR code and check in here.

Find all 7 fantastic beasts and submit them HERE by February 28 to enter into a drawing for a chance to win a prize. For all you finders and seekers wanting an extra entry in the drawing, take a picture with any of the posters and use the hashtag(s), #HPatDPL and  #HarryPotterBookNight, and don't forget to tag us at @Dallaspubliclibrary.
