Run to the Library Virtual 5K

Exercise your mind and run to the library! Complete 5 km (3.1 miles) by running, walking, biking, or other activity anytime during our Summer Reading Program (see dates above). When you have completed your race printout a “bib number” certificate or pick one up at the Adult Reference Desk on the 2nd floor. Completed “bib numbers” can be presented at the Adult Reference Desk for a small prize (while supplies last).
Tell us about your race! We would love to see pictures, hear about your adventure, or where you completed the V5K. Join the Run to the Library Virtual 5K event on Facebook.com/rochesterhillspl and comment or upload your run via an exercise tracker. Or just share a selfie or comment on any social media you use and tag Rochester Hills Public Library.

Adult and Teen RHPL Letterboxes
“Letterboxing combines artistic ability with "treasure-hunts" in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation. Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in a personal journal, then use their own rubber stamp, called a signature stamp, to stamp into the letterbox's logbook.” (from www.atlasquest.com )
Clues available to pick up at the Adult Reference Desk on the 2nd floor or access the clues anytime from letterboxing.org or atlasquest.com - simply search "RHPL". Get the clues, follow them, and find the letterbox. Bring a notebook and inkpad to capture the stamp image found in the letterbox. Bring your own stamp to leave your mark on the logbook inside the letterbox or simply sign and date the logbook.
