"X Marks the Spot" at the Marathon County Public Library


"X Marks the Spot" at the Marathon County Public Library.

More than 20 teenagers participated in the "Message in a Bottle" scavenger hunt there. 

Organizers say several clues were scattered around the library. 

They say teams worked together to solve the puzzles and find the hidden treasure.

Organizers say it's a great way to help teens work together and stay active.

"It's an age group that is not necessarily under served but it's difficult to find activities that they want to engage in so if we can help at all and provide a good environment for them to be in, we want to do that," said Library Assistant, Amy Ryan.

Organizers say they plan to have another scavenger hunt next week for kids third through fifth grade.
