Find out what geocaching is, and then find your first one!

You can find geocaches all over – in your neighborhood, at a park or on a road trip.  It can consist of a logbook only, or you may find a treasure inside (you can take one, but be sure to leave one too in that case).  All you need is a gps device such as on a phone.  Learn how to get started and see if you can find a geocache in or near the library!  Join us on Thursday, August 1
