Families are invited to explore Letterboxing. Letterboxing is quickly becoming a favorite outdoor activity in America as it has been in England. The idea is going on a treasure hunt with a purpose.
Learn the history and basics of letterboxing, create a trail name and stamp, then follow clues to find a letterbox (or two) in the Library.
If you plan to join us for the “hunt” please sign up either online under “Events”, at the Youth Services Desk or call the library at 203 576-7400 ext 408.
