Just download the Geoaching App or go to Geocaching.com to search your area for Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. Select one of our 19 locations, and you will find the coordinates that will lead you to a hidden outdoor container or cache. Inside that cache is a note that leads you into the library to search for the final cache.

Can you find all 19 caches? Good luck on your treasure hunt!

A Library card and PIN will be required to access many of the resources listed.  Need help with your card or PIN?  Contact your nearest location or call 419-259-5200. Need a new card?
