Where are the Totally Ninja Raccoons in Farmington?
They will be hiding in several local businesses during July! The hunt is based on characters from a children’s book series by Pennsylvania author and Independent Bookstore owner, Kevin Coolidge. In 2020, From My Shelf Books and Gifts in Wellsbro, PA decided to host a scavenger hunt. In 2021, Coolidge invited other Independent Bookstores around the US to join in the fun. Amy’s Bookcase, 2530 San Juan Blvd, Farmington, NM took him up on his offer. With a goal of encouraging families to have fun going to local businesses, Amy’s Bookcase is hosting the event for the third year. This year, they will be joined by seventeen other small businesses.
