Queens Library Ring Quest

Though Peter Jackson’s new film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, based on the book The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, is one way to experience the wonderful world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, you can also explore it right here on the Queens Library website.

Should you accept our challenge, your epic quest is simple: find and “collect” three golden rings hidden on the Queens Library website.

At the end of your journey, you’ll earn a digital badge of completion—and bragging rights. And who knows, you may discover a few new powers your library card bestows upon you!

Here’s your first clue:

1. The Hobbit begins to take shape when Bilbo Baggins has a social event with several dwarves in his hobbit home. To find your first ring, you must go to the place on the Queens Library website where you can find free activities, movie screenings, concerts, clubs, and just plain hangout times.

I have a question though. How will you learn the new benefits of my library card after I have finished the challenge? Will you send me an email telling me what the "powers" are? Or is there another way for me to find out whether or not I have passed?
