Discover Your Superpowers at the UCF Libraries!

All UCF students are invited to use a mobile device to complete a superhero mission in the John C. Hitt Library.

From August 29-September 2nd, you can choose to join a mission that will ask you to make several stops around the library to discover your library superpowers.  Everyone who completes the mission will be entered to win a prize, and all superheroes will get a cookie or snack.  Prizes in the drawing include a limited edition UCF Libraries Superhero tshirt, a tour of UCF Special Collections and University Archives including a photo op with Vinnie the Vulture, UCF Theatre tickets, and more.

There will be a table set up in the Knowledge Commons, just past the library entry on the main floor, with instructions and special prizes.
