Teens in Alhambra, CA, will be 'Seek the Unknown" in their community with their special friend, Domo-Kun! Teens will check out a Domo doll at the Teen Reference Desk and submit pictures of their buddy throughout Alhambra. Teens who submit the best pics will get a prize and anyone who checks out a Domo will get a treat as well!
I absolutely love this idea! I definitely want to implement something like this in the future. I am really interested in augmented reality/digital scavenger hunts, but most of my teens just don't have the resources to do something like that, so using Domo-kun like this is a great alternative. Thanks for sharing!
I will admit that I definitely have a personal interest in this program because I am utterly and hopelessly in love with Domo. However, he is a very popular character in our community and giving teens the opportunity to take their buddy throughout the community no only encourages teens to explore their community, but the Library is in fact a part of their community. We did have some concerns about connecting this activity with the library, but we were able to resolve those issues by encouraging teens to take pics inside the library (as well as outside) because, after all, Domo really loves books and food. It should be a lot of fun and if you are curious to see the pics, we are asking teens to post their photos on our Facebook Page (fb.com/alhambrateens).
