Find Waldo in The Elmwood
Where’s Waldo? He’s back and will be hiding in Mrs. Dalloway’s Bookstore and two dozen other business establishments in the Elmwood shopping area for the month of July. Can you find him in the neighborhood?If so, you get an invite to our fun party with free prize drawings on Saturday, August 3, at 1:00!
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo” passport at Mrs. Dalloway’s in July. The passport contains the names of all the participating merchants; just visit them, search out where Waldo is hidden, and get your passport stamped or signed. In the bookstore, you’ll have an extra challenge, because we’re hiding both Waldo and his nemesis, Odlaw.
Collecting store stamps or signatures at 20 or more businesses gets you an invite to our Find Waldo party on August 3, where we’ll draw names and award prizes donated by local businesses. Sound good? We’ll have passports ready for all sharp-eyed hunters beginning on July 1; deadline for turning them in to Mrs. Dalloway’s is by closing time on July 31.

If you are planning a trip soon, our Travel section could be a big help. In addtion to the usual travel guide suspects like Lonely Planet, Rick Steves, Eyewitness, or Fodor's, we've uncovered some guidebooks that you won't find everywhere else. Come take a look, and please ask if you don't find a specific series book for the city or country you're interested in. If we're sold out of what you want, we can usually get you a copy within a couple of days. Oh, and by the way, you can be assured that the edition you find on our shelves is the most up-to-date available.
