Lure at the Library

Greetings Trainers!

Having trouble finding pokemon? Out of lures? Want to take a break from the heat and take some photos or color for a while? Well, you’re in luck. The John C. Hitt Library will be hosting “Lure at the Library”.

On Thursday, July 28th from 11am – 3pm, the library will ensure that there is a lure active on the “Flame of Hope” Pokestop located at the front entrance. During this time we will also have other pokemon related activites including:

  • A photo booth area with pokemon props and silhouettes for teams Instinct, Valor, and Mystic
  • Coloring tables for pokemon relating coloring
  • Gym owner board. If you take control of the Reflecting Pond Gym, come inside and put your team’s logo on the owner board (even if it is only there briefly 🙂 )
  • A Pokemon in the Library photo contest. Post your photo booth pics to Instagram and tag UCFLibrary. The funniest pic of the day will win a $15 gift card to Tijuana Flats.

We hope to see you at the library on the 28th. Until then, happy hunting!

Gotta Catch'em All

Gotta Catch’em All!

Greetings fellow trainers!

The John C. Hitt Library has experienced a large amount of Pokemon sightings around the building. From the Circulation Desk, to the Reference Desk, and even the LibTech Desk, these Pokemon can be found in every nook and cranny. And no wonder, there are two Pokestops at the John C. Hitt Library. One is on the North end of the building, by the windows, and the other is out front at the “Flame of Hope” sculpture. There is even a Pokemon Gym just out front at the Reflecting Pond.

Good luck out there trainers! And remember, the Library is also a great place to find resources, study with friends, or relax in peace and quiet to simply read a book.
