For the sixth year, the Delaware County District Library is partnering with Preservation Parks of Delaware County during our Summer Reading Club. Beginning June 8, you can sign up to win prizes for the Summer Reading Club and you can get your guide for the Preservation Parks Summer Letterbox Adventure. Letterboxing is fun and gives families a unique way to explore some of the great outdoor areas Delaware County has to offer. Guides give clues for what paths to take, where to look, and lead to a hidden letterbox where you can make a craft and stamp the location off your guide. 

This year, the Library is also encouraging kids to color their own roaming gnome and take photographs the places you and your "Gnomie" explore. Email them to us at the library at or tweet them to our twitter handle @DelawareLibrary and use the tag #DCDLRoamingGnome. Use the video below to help stir up some creativity and see how much fun you can have letterboxing!
