“I See You is the highly anticipated page-turner by author Clare Mackintosh whose debut book I Let You Go caused quite a stir late last year,” says Marg Wood from the Napanee Branch. “It was hailed as the new Girl on the Train and proved to be extremely popular; in fact it is still in high demand. I just finished reading I See You and I predict that it will garner the same interest and be just as popular!”

You've heard the buzz about geocaching and would love to give it a try. But... what is geocaching, exactly?

We're glad you asked. Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers using GPS devices or smartphones. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, and share the experience online.

Geocaches can be found anywhere. They can be as small as your fingernail or as big as a toolbox. It's an amazing way to discover places you've never been before.
