Geocaching is the process of locating objects using GPS coordinates. You can do this from your own app-enabled device with a free downloadable app. Local geocaching enthusiast, Jim Perone, will be at Rodman Library on Tues., July 9, at 3:00 p.m. to explain just what geocaching is and how it works. After his brief demonstration, teens, ages 12-18, will be paired up and let loose until 5:00 p.m. to use their own mobile devices to locate hidden objects or “caches” on the library grounds. Prizes will be awarded to the top pair finishers.

Representatives from Hot Pots Pottery will show some of the special techniques to make projects come to life.

This program is free of charge, including the painting and glazing materials.
