(ABC 6 News) -- With cabin fever setting in as the quarantine continues, Rochester Public Library is helping out by initiating a "bear hunt" for families.
Based on the children's book by Michael Rosen, the public has been urged to place stuffed teddy bears in the windows of their homes. Then the scavenger hunt begins, as families and children can go outside and find as many bears as possible.
The library's doors may be closed for the time being, so the "bear hunt" is a way for them to still find a way to interact with families.
"Going to story time and doing activities at the library, for many of our families, that's a normal part of their week. And doing whatever we can to still participate in that is really important," Head of Marketing and Community Engagement Karen Lemke said.
The library has also been connecting with the public with live book readings on Facebook in the morning.
