Where’s Odi @ SDPL

This July, Odi the Coyote is hiding somewhere inside all 36 locations of the San Diego Public Library. How many can you find? The Library Shop’s most popular program is back with a twist. This year, instead of Waldo, we’re searching for Odi(Opportunity, Discovery, Inspiration), the Library’s new mascot. 

Join us at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 2 at the Kensington-Normal Heights Library for the kick-off!

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

GRAND CHAMPION RAFFLE

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 2019 over 200 participants completed the Where’s Waldo 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).


GOLD & CHROME BUTTONS


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 and just for fun we’ve also hidden limited edition Chrome Buttons across the system — 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 Buttons to unlock your prize!
