Weekly Mascot Map Clues

Octavia the octopus is our mascot for this year’s SLP! She will be hiding in the window of a different Hudson business each week, from June 13 – August 6. When kids find the octopus, they go in that business and get their map stamped. They return their stamped map by August 6 (the end of the Summer Learning Program) in order to be eligible for the prize drawing!

Octavia will explore her 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 she 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 13 – June 19), Clue 1:

Is Octavia the octopus what you seek?
We want you to find her easily this first week!
If you get your SLP folder at our favorite place,
Look near the desk … you should see her face!

Week 2 (June 21 – June 26), Clue 2:

Where could Octavia be this week?
Well, in all of this heat,
She needed a cold treat,
So she headed down Library Street!

Week 3 (June 28 – July 3), Clue 3:

Frozen yoghurt last week was great!
For another treat, she just couldn’t wait!
So Octavia searched First & Main streets …
And nestled down with a sweet cookie treat!

Week 4 (July 5 – July 10), Clue 4:

Back to the library, Octavia swam really fast
To get an iced tea – they’re open at last!
She’s not in Childrens (she was already here),
But just across the rotunda, she’s very near!

Week 5 (July 12 – July 17), Clue 5:

Is Octavia 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 6 (July 19 – 24), Clue 6:

Books, books, we love books!
And Octavia? 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 26 – July 31), Clue 7:

Octavia’s adventures have taken her
To lots of great places to eat!
This week is another: She finally found …
The perfect place for a hot poppin’ treat!

Week 8, FINAL WEEK! (August 2 – 6), Clue 8:

Our friend, Octavia, 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 where you check out your books? (When you find her, remember to turn in your map!)
