A ball of stickers weighing 308 pounds — that's a lot! Families can see it for themselves if they visit Fletcher Free Library, from now until mid-January. And they don't even have to go inside to get a look.

The Burlington library is displaying the world’s largest ball of stickers in its front window. The sticky sphere weighs 308.25 pounds, to be exact, and clinched the Guinness World Records title on November 11, 2020. It's on loan from Sticky Brand, a Vermont-based company that specializes in custom-made stickers and decals.

To extend the World Record-themed fun, the library has partnered with Burlington City Arts and Church Street Marketplace to create an outdoors scavenger hunt. Families can look for eight clues related to other Guinness World Records entries from Vermont in the windows of the library and businesses on the Church Street Marketplace. 

Pick up the scavenger hunt sheet from the Fletcher Free Library or download and print it out at the library's website. Return a completed puzzle sheet to the library by January 8 to be entered into a raffle the following day.  The first 50 entrants will receive a piece of candy from Lake Champlain Chocolates.

“We’re excited to share some of the special — and wacky — things people do, and to help add joy and fun to an unusual holiday
season with this outside scavenger hunt," said library director Mary Danko.

Who knows? Maybe your kids will even be inspired to try to break a record of their own this holiday break.
