There's so much to be grateful for! We've made this list to help you find people and things that make your life better. Read the instructions carefully to the end to learn about prizes.


Write your full name. Find an object or person for each box on the list. Write what or who they are in the space provided.


To enter competition for prizes, complete the scavenger hunt and turn it in first. If we cannot reach you to claim your prize, the prize goes to the next runner up. Winners are announced on Sunday.  Prizes each week include:

1st –  $20 + a book

2nd –  $15 + Casey's gift card

3rd –  $10 + a mug with a cozy cocoa kit

To turn in your sheet:

  • Take a clear & readable photo or scan of the completed list and either send it by
    • Message to Melbourne Public Library on Facebook
    • Email to
  • To turn in a physical sheet
    • Drop the sheet in the library book drop on the deck
    • At the same time, leave a message at 641-482-3115


Optional: try this activity for added gratitude! Find time this holiday to ask family members what items they would list. Focus on the “why” behind the “what.”(For example, “I’m thankful for grandma because she always makes me laugh even when I’m sad.”)


Tip: Lead by example! Answer thoughtfully and focus on the meaning behind the object or person you’re thankful for — what value do they add to your life that makes you thankful?
