Liz, the preservationist and repair technician in the S.C. Room, was asked to create a Geocaching checkpoint for the library using an old encyclopedia.  Geocaching is like a high-tech scavanger hunt where participants use GPS data as clues to find the next stop.  The Charleston County Public Library will be joining the nation-wide phenomena by adding establishing a checkpoint later in the month.  Geocaching is a fun and educational way to learn about institutions and attractions in your area, or while on vacation.  For more information on Geocachings, please click on the link below:
