Prizes announced for Saturday scavenger hunt
Community First Saturday is scheduled 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Jacksonville Jaguars International Plaza, the parking lot adjacent to the JAX Chamber along East Bay Street.
The inaugural Urban Core Scavenger Hunt, part of the January edition of Community First Saturday, will feature an overnight stay at the Omni Downtown and spending money as its top prize.

Anthony Allegretti, director of Downtown engagement for the JAX Chamber, said when the results are tabulated at 4 p.m., the winning team will receive two rooms Saturday night at the Omni and a $500 prepaid debit card, courtesy of Community First Credit Union.

The hunt is intended to encourage contestants to discover more of the neighborhood.

"The new location has a lot of connectivity. We have always wanted people to explore more of the urban core. The scavenger hunt is designed to highlight the walkable and bike-able streetscape of Downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods. The winners will be able to celebrate their

victory Saturday night Downtown at the Omni," he said.

Allegretti said the line-up for the March 16 Community First Natural Life Music Festival at Metropolitan Park will be announced at 2 p.m. Saturday in the plaza.

Musical week on the way at Main Library
The Main Library at 303 N. Laura St.
Two classical music programs in the next week will prove again that there's more to the Jacksonville Public Library than books.

At 11 a.m. Saturday, the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra will present the latest installment of "Musical Storybooks." It's an interactive early literacy program for preschoolers designed to foster through music an appreciation for books and reading.

Children and parents gathered around the alligator couch on the second floor will be read "Mole Music" by David McPhails. The picture book tells the story of a mole who gains an appreciation for music and learns to play the violin. The reading will be accompanied by a string quartet from the symphony.

The half-hour program is free and open to the public.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, the library's "Tuesday Serenade" will present a program featuring pianist Eun M. Li and violinist Min Young Cho. They will perform selections composed by Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert and Josef Suk.

Cho, a native of Seoul, Korea, was a member of the Korean Philharmonic Orchestra and earned post-graduate degrees in music at Florida State University.

Lee, also from South Korea, graduated from Ewha Women's University and Sungshin Women's University before immigrating to America. She was accepted into the master's program at the FSU College of Music in 2007 and is currently a doctoral candidate.

Admission to the concert is free and open to the public.

Library customers who use the public parking garage at Duval and Main streets may take their garage ticket to the ground floor Popular Services desk to get validation for free parking after 5 p.m. weekdays and on weekends. Free on-street parking is available on weekends and weekdays after 6 p.m.
