Weekly Mascot Map Clues
Boky the ring-tailed lemur is our mascot for this year’s SLP! He will be hiding in the window of a different Hudson business each week, from June 14 – August 7. When kids find the lemur, they go in that business and get their map stamped. They return their stamped map by August 7 (the end of the Summer Learning Program) in order to be eligible for the prize drawing!
Boky will explore his way around town and be in a new location each Tuesday morning through Saturday evening!
Each week, we will post a clue on the blog to help you figure out where he is hiding that week. The clue will be included below, right here on this blog page. Good luck and have fun!
If you need a mascot map, you can download and print one from here:
Week 1 (June 14 – June 19), Clue 1:
Is Boky the lemur what you seek?
We want you to find her easily this first week!
If you get your SLP bag at our favorite place,
Look near the front door … you should see her face!
Week 2 (June 22 – June 27), Clue 2:
Oh no! Today Boky is running behind!
No worries! She’ll be there after lunchtime.
By Tuesday at 2, she’ll be all settled in,
At a place full of music, guitars, and violins!
Week 3 (June 29 – July 4), Clue 3:
Where could Boky be this week?
Well, in all of this heat,
She needed a cold treat,
So she headed down Library Street!
Week 4 (July 6 – July 11), Clue 4:
Is Boky looking for coffee?
Or maybe she really wants tea.
All you must do is open the door!
Do you know where she could be?
Week 5 (July 13 – July 18), Clue 5:
You might be “amazed” at where Boky is now.
Perhaps you’ll even get to meet?
She looked all around and finally found …
The perfect place for a hot poppin’ treat!
Week 6 (July 20 – July 25), Clue 6:
Books, books, we love books!
And our friend Boky? She does, too.
But where else in town do they have lots of books?
We bet she’s there waiting for you!
Week 7 (July 27 – August 1), Clue 7:
Our little friend Boky is hungry again.
But where in our town will she go?
A little sweet treat would surely be neat,
One made with peace, love, and dough!
Week 8, FINAL WEEK! (August 3 – 7), Clue 8:
Our lemur friend, Boky, had a wonderful time exploring our beautiful town of Hudson. Now she has returned home to see all of her favorite librarians! Can you find her?
How to Upload a Photo to “SLP Challenges”
