Geocaching on Islesboro!

For ages 3-8 (and the young at heart)!

Want to go out and explore? Feel like finding some treasure while you're at it? Well, you're in luck! The Alice L. Pendleton Library is putting on a Geocaching treasure hunt! Just come to the library for a map and the geographic coordinates (or take a look at them yourself by clicking here). Then, head to each of the IIT trails. Input the coordinates into a GPS-enabled program, such as Google Maps, on your phone or other mobile device and follow them to the location of a Geocache.

What will you find? Well, every cache relates to a picture book, all nominated for the Chickadee Award. A treasure hunt capped off with a good story? Sounds like a good time to me!

If you have questions, please call us or come to the library. We'll be more than happy to help!

Happy hunting!
