Interested in participating in a choose-an-adventure-style story that you play via email? You, the hero, will explore classic Scottish myths, fairy tales, and folklore as you select your path. Will you save an ailing princess, recover the selkies’ skin, and live your life in peace and content? Or will you meet your doom as you encounter fabulous creatures and fabled beasts? You decide! Ages 7–12.
To participate in this program, ask a parent or guardian to register you here. Registration will be open June 24 through July 17. On July 6, you'll receive an email with the first part of the story and will need to make your first decision to receive your next part. You’ll respond with your choice and within 48 hours, Monday–Friday, Library staff will respond with your next segment. The game ends when you’ve finished the story or on July 31, whichever comes first!
