Find the Treasure, Win a Kindle!

To celebrate the launch of our new eBook collection, we are sending you on a hunt that could lead to great treasures, including gift cards or an Amazon Kindle. Sounds exciting, right?

All you have to do is find one of the dozens and dozens of “specially-marked” books hidden — often in plain sight — throughout the communities served by KDL. If you see a DWNLOADKDL.ORG logo in the bottom right corner of the book, you’ll know you found the bounty. When you locate one of the books, take a picture of it with a little of the background (the table it’s on, the window it’s propped against) and upload it to Kent District Library’s Facebook page or tweet the photo and tag @KDLNews. Then leave the books right where you found them. You will automatically be entered to win one of our fantastic prizes.

Since all treasure hunts are more fun with clues, here is a photo clue to get you started. Check back soon for additional information and more clues. Happy hunting!

  2. Joseph Says:

    I don’t get it… So will these symbols be in the book itself, or can they be on a sign???

  3. Katie Says:

    Hi Joseph,

    To be entered into the contest, you need to find one of our books placed throughout the community.Take a picture of the book and post it to KDL’s Facebook page. Thanks!

    But, I found a poster with that book symbol, can I take a picture of the sign or does it have to be in a book

  5. Katie Says:


    You do need to find a book to be entered into the contest. The posters are just for publicity.

    Hi Sherri,

    The contest will run through the end of January, so there’s still plenty of time to find one of our hidden books!
