Geocaching_Logo

Just in time for a summer adventure – the Orion Library introduces a new geocache. What is geocaching? Kind of like a treasure hunt using GPS coordinates, geocaching is a family-friendly activity that challenges players to explore.  And our new geocache involves plenty of exploring! You’ll start outside and answer a series of riddles all over the library in order to locate the final prize. Call the adult reference desk if you have any questions about our new cache, or geocaching in general – (248) 693-3001.
