Mesa Public Library Offers Reward-Based Adventure For Area Newcomers


Mesa Public Library, in partnership with several local  establishments, is hosting Newcomer Adventure: Welcome to Los Alamos for those who are new  to the Los Alamos community and are ready to do some exploring! This program begins today, March 1st, is free to the public, and runs year-round. Designed to help new arrivals get  acquainted with their surroundings, the reward-based program offers a fun and structured way to  discover Los Alamos and White Rock. 

To take part in the program, pick up the Newcomer Adventure flyer (which will provide further  instructions) from a participating location: Mesa Public Library, White Rock Branch Library,  Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce, Los Alamos Visitor Center, White Rock Visitor Center,  Betty Ehart Senior Center, White Rock Senior Center, Bradbury Science Museum, Los Alamos  History Museum, Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, Los Alamos County Aquatic Center,  Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Nature Center (Pajarito Environmental Education Center),  and Los Alamos Eco Station. 

To complete the Newcomer Adventure, follow the instructions on the flyer to collect one token  in every color—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet—from at least six of the eleven pick up locations. For example, you can find your orange token at Betty Ehart Senior Center or White  Rock Senior Center. When you have collected all six tokens, bring them to Mesa Public Library  or White Rock Branch Library to redeem them for a free Los Alamos-themed book. Twelve  book choices are available, limit one book per household. There is no time limit or age limit for  this adventure. All newcomers to Los Alamos are welcome to participate!
