Like a video game (without the video)

My parents came to visit for the Fourth of July weekend, and my dad introduced me to geocaching.  He had learned about it from my brother, who took my parents to a geocaching event a few weeks earlier.  What first grabbed my attention and made me curious was that someone had hidden a cache here at the library!

You can also find books about geocaching at the library.  We have books for children and adults that explain the activity, as well as stories where geocaching is part of the plot!
