Looking for Something to Do Monday? Hunt for Pokemon at Rock Island Public Library!

Monday is the final day for the Be a Tourist in Your Own Backyard weekend. If you’re looking for something fun to do with the family, drop by the Rock Island Library’s free Pokemon Night.

Pokemon Night is for all ages, and is Monday, Jan. 15, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Rock Island Downtown Library, 401 19th Street. Activities include Pokemon gaming, trivia, and a scavenger hunt for prizes. Participants can learn the basics of the original trading card game, and hunt for Pokemon on their devices. The Downtown Library is a Pokemon Gym, so you can see if you can take it over. The event also allows you to make and take some Pokemon art home.

The event is free and no registration is required. All Rock Island Public Libraries are open normal hours on Martin Luther King Jr Day, Monday, January 15.
