Bookin’ Around Greenwood

Hello neighbors, your library misses you! The Greenwood Branch of the Seattle Public Library and the Phinney Neighborhood Association are partnering to bring you Bookin’ Around Greenwood, a community book cover scavenger hunt.


Here’s how it works:

  • Look for 25+ book cover posters displayed at The Greenwood Library, local business, and community windows throughout our neighborhood. See how many you can find!
  • When you spot a poster, snap a picture or jot down the book title. If you have access to a printer, you can print out the instruction sheet linked below. Simply circle the books you find and send us an image of your sheet when you finish.
  • Email 3 titles/photos you find for a chance to win a gift certificate to one of our local businesses. Submit 10+ for an extra chance to win. Email to [email protected].

We’ve suggested some fun activities on many of these posters as well. Feel free to email us any of your creations at the email listed above. We will share your work with the community!

We hope to see you again soon! In the meantime visit us at for book recommendations, to get free digital books & media, and to answer library account questions. Happy Bookin’!
