“With the start of the football season and a new school year, “Gnome in the Tomes” will be a good chance for everyone in Stillwater to explore the library,” said Lynda Reynolds, library director.

Participants should be on the lookout for a twelve inch gnome dressed in OSU gear.  Upon discovery, the finder is encouraged to take a picture with the gnome and send it to  Those without a camera can take the gnome up to the Help Desk to get their photo taken.  Pictures will be posted on the library’s website and facebook page.  Each person who finds the gnome and has a picture taken will get a chance in the drawing, which will take place Monday, Nov. 19.
