Summer Fun for the Family
If you enjoy puzzles and outdoor activities with a touch of science thrown in, try geocaching. This worldwide pastime allows people to hide an object (geocache) in a secret location with the expectation that other people will find the object using GPS (global positioning system) technology. Geocaching also comes with its own lingo and generally accepted rules of conduct.

To learn more about this pastime, the library's collection includes a few handy introductory titles for adults and kids:
