Even Sam Spade might have trouble keeping track of the infamous falcon these days since it has been showing up all over Rockaway Township during Rockaway Public Library's Big Read of The Maltese Falcon. Big Readers of all ages (the falcon sports a checked cape and cap when hiding from the 12-and-under crowd) have been sending the library their guesses of the falcon's location for a chance to win movie tix. So far, the  bookish bird has shown up at the Rockaway Town Square Mall, the library's Hibernia branch, and the local recycling center. Who knows where it's winging its way to next?
