Front Royal in Need of Heroes

There have been a string of crimes committed throughout Front Royal that authorities have been unable to stop. If these deplorable habit crimes are not stopped soon this could be the end of Front Royal or even worse, the end of Samicon forever! Be a hero and join our game to solve these crimes by visiting local businesses and finding the clues. If you show your Samuels Public Library card, you can even enjoy some Hero discounts from our local businesses. Get the game details and register here to participate!

Greetings Heroes!

The league HQ has received intel that members of The League of Deplorable Habits are attempting to cause trouble in town. Businesses and locations in Front Royal have been targeted and it's your job to find out where they have gone and what they have gotten their hands on. Find the codes attached to their calling cards to gain badges. The more badges you earn the more chances to win prizes! Don’t forget to check business websites as these villains sometimes leave their mark online! Need a hint? Check with Samuels adult reference desk or our Facebook page.

One of our more notorious nemesis, this villain has grown in infamy amongst the league with her deplorable habit of writing in the margins of library books, obscuring text, and leaving destruction in their wake, notably the dog-earring of pages, *I shudder just writing this. She has been known to leave taunting messages to frustrate our heroes. Keep an eye out for evidence of her movements.

 
Don’t be fooled by this one. Once the Note taker’s minion, he has struck on his own leaving his own brand of mischief. You may know his calling card by the absurd amount of mustaches that deface the town. Will no one be safe?!
 
 

 

The ick, the mess, this villain is known by many names and they all make librarians everywhere tremble. If there is ever a more befoul fiend they have nothing on the stain. Keep an eye out for this marauding pollutant you can't miss his particular calling card.

 
Warning to all heroes. He is everywhere. He is in everything. You can not escape.
 
 
This dapper black hat cuts through all the rest with his unfeeling ambiance and swag.
