Where’s Odi @ SDPL

This July, the Odi the Coyote is hiding somewhere inside all 36 locations of the San Diego Public Library. How many can you find? The Library Shop SD’s most popular program is back with all-new button designs and prizes, including custom Odi lanyards! 

Same fun challenges, same fun prizes, and still free to participate in 3 easy steps:

  1. Pick up your official Where’s Odi @SDPL passport at any San Diego Public Library location.
  2. Find Odi at any location and tell a librarian. They’ll stamp your passport and give you a button. Each branch has designed its button, but supplies are limited. Can you collect all 36?
  3. Turn in your stamped passport to any SDPL location or the Library Shop SD at the Central Library by July 31st to be entered into the Shop’s prize raffle! All passports can enter the raffle with the same chance of winning, no matter how many Odis you find. Raffle winners will receive Library Shop SD gift cards.

This July, a miniature Odi will be hiding in all 36 libraries, and Odi will be out and about visiting their library friends.


Shirts, hats & backpacks can only hold so many buttons so this year we won’t make you wait until the end to get your custom lanyard. Find Odi at any 10 branches and with your 10th passport stamp you’ll receive this year’s exclusive Where’s Odi @ SDPL lanyard to display your buttons.


Are you Odi obsessed? Can’t stand the thought of missing out on one of the 36 limited edition buttons? Congratulations, you may have what it takes to be a Grand Champion. (In 2022, over 200 participants completed the Where’s Odi challenge, visiting all 36 library locations.)

If you’re one of our completists this time around bring your finished passport to the Library Shop and we’ll enter you into the Grand Champion Raffle for a chance to win a $200 Library Shop gift card, PLUS, you’ll receive a lanyard to display your buttons on and an Odi Grand Champion Medallion (made in the Library’s IDEA Lab) while supplies last. You’ll also receive 36% off your entire purchase, in honor of your amazing accomplishment. Basically, you’ll be treated like royalty by our Library Shop staff just for visiting the library (or in this case, 36 libraries).


But wait, there’s more!

Be on the lookout for one-of-a-kind Gold Buttons to unlock super-secret deals & prizes from the Library Shop — but you won’t know where they’re hidden until you find one! If you do uncover one of these elusive buttons on your quest to find Odi tag us online @libraryshopsd with the hashtag #WheresOdi to let us know and visit the Library Shop in-person with your Gold Button to unlock your prize!
