MiLibraryQuest: Treasures of the Deep
Pirates, shipwrecks, and monsters have inhabited our oceans for millennia.

Answers to the puzzle will include famous pirates, real shipwrecks, and mythological monsters.
Solve the puzzle by July 31 and enter to win a gift card from Bridgman Public Library.
This is a statewide event but you will only compete against other Bridgman Public Library participants.
