CUMBERLAND - To celebrate the winter holiday season, families with children ages 3-12 are invited to participate in a weekly " Elf on the Shelf" scavenger hunt at the Cumberland Public Library.

The scavenger hunt reflects the tale told in the popular book "Elf on the Shelf," in which a special scout elf is sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists.

Participants will be sent on a scavenger hunt to locate the elf. Helpful location hints will be listed on "Elf Tickets."

The hunt will run Dec. 2-30. One winner will be chosen to receive a prize from the Children's Room on Dec. 30. Call 401-333-2552, ext. 3, for more information.
