Pokémon at the Library


It’s opening weekend, and we’re getting a little Pokémon crazy. We’ve got a variety of Pokémon themed things going on in the library, including an Instagram photo contest. We’ll be setting off lures all weekend (add us on facebook and twitter to hear about when we’re setting them) so stop by and say hello!

What have you caught in the library?


If you catch anything cool in the library, tell us! We’ve got a whiteboard set up next to the leisure reading section (there’s a picture of it at the bottom of this post) for everyone to record what Pokémon they’ve found in the library. Add your coolest library catch when you come in, and check out what other people have caught.

Instagram contest

We’re having a photo contest! To enter, follow us at @bryantlib on Instagram and upload a Pokémon themed picture of the library: it can be a picture of a Pokémon you caught in the building or a picture of you and your friends with some of our props (more on that next).

Here are the details and rules:

  • The contest will run from September 2 – September 12, 2016.
  • In order to count for the contest, entries must feature the Douglas & Judith Krupp Library and you must be following @bryantlib on instagram.
  • All the people in your picture must provide consent before the picture is taken.
  • The picture must have the hashtag #bryantlibpics in the caption.
  • The prize is $15 to Dunkin Donuts!
  • Winners will be announced on September 14th, 2016 and will be selected by a panel of library staff. Entries will be judged based on originality and the creative representation of Pokémon in the library.

Props and Pins

If you need some ideas for pictures don’t worry—we set up a table with Pokéballs, masks, and a stuffed Pikachu to inspire and enhance your photos.  We’ve also made some pins for you to take, including one with everyone’s favorite mascot Tupper, and put on your favorite Pokémon hunting gear.
