..Where's Waldo


(And he's stopping by all the coolest spots in town).


This July 1st-31st you and your family can participate in a free scavenger hunt spanning 4th Avenue, Downtown, and Broadway Village! No purchase is necessary to play, and you could even win incredible prizes from a variety of Tucson businesses. Pick up your Where's Waldo passport at Antigone Books, Yikes Toys, or the Main Library Children's Room to get started and learn more.


..Super Staff Pick

Every month, we pick a title that we believe is deserving of extra attention. The books are available for a 20% discount via the store, email, or the phone.
