"Have YOU read the book yet?"

Long Beach Reads One Book 201



The Long Beach Public Library foundation is proud to announce a family friendly, exciting element to this year's program... the Geocaching Treasure Hunt

What Is Geocaching?
Using GPS coordinates and navigation, you are invited along on a Racing in the Rain-themed scavenger hunt throughout the City to find hidden "caches."  Be the "first to find" for special bragging rights, and discover book-themed clues and locations throughout Long Beach.  Watch the video below for the full explanation. (You will need a GPS navigation device or a special "app" for your smart phone.)


How Do I Begin?
Ready to
add another layer of enjoyment to your reading of The Art of Racing in the Rain by participating in the new 'in' sport of Geocaching? Great! Here are a few general tips to get you started. You don't have to wait for the "official" Art of Racing in the Rain themed caches. Watch the video on how you can select a cache near you and start practicing so you are ready for March!



So, Where Are They?
During the Month of March, we will have numerous Racing in the Rain related geocaches hidden throughout the city.  Using your GPS as your guide, it will be up to you to figure out the clues and find the treasures!
