Geocache is an outdoor recreational activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers called geocaches or caches anywhere in the world.
The Lee's Summit Branch is geocaching inside the branch. One of our local Boy Scout troops has created a "make believe" book with a "make believe" call number that the scouts will be asked to find in the Library.
There are blank pages for notes for the scouts to write the clues about the book's location obtained with the GPS system. Using these clues, the scouts then have to solve a mental puzzle to find the book on the shelves.
