Welcome to the Gibbs Smith Book Scavenger Hunt at The Gateway!

Nothing says summer like a fun scavenger hunt, and we want you to be a part of a big one happening at The Gateway in Salt Lake City. Gibbs Smith Publisher and The Gateway present the Gibbs Smith Summer Scavenger Hunt! This fun event challenges individuals and families, young and old, to locate art covers of our books scattered throughout The Gateway.

How to Participate

Scavenger hunt participants begin their hunt near the Olympic Fountain next to a large Gibbs Smith Scavenger Hunt poster that includes a QR code of the list of clues needed to find the books. They are encouraged to post a picture of themselves on their social media accounts with the hashtag #gibbssmithsearch and #atthegateway while tagging @shopthegateway and @gibbssmithbooks and/or @babylitbooks as they begin their search. Each book cover includes a small symbol such as a heart, moon, or star. Participants make a list of all the symbols found and direct message their completed list to @gibbssmithbooks or @babylitbooks on Instagram or Facebook.

Book Hunt Categories

The lists are divided up into four book categories:

Family | Foodies | Design | Outdoors

You can either find the books related to their category and be eligible to win a gift basket or find all the books and be entered to win a $250 credit to the Gibbs Smith website. Other participants are eligible for other smaller prizes. The first participant to complete the scavenger hunt will also receive a gift basket prize.

Come explore The Gateway from June 25-July 9 and get into the spirit of reading. Happy hunting!
