Letterboxing at The Westport Library

The Westport Library currently houses two Letterboxes, courtesy of Girl Scout Troop #50192:

Butterflies Letterbox
Fairy Tales Letterbox

If you are a Letterbox hunter, here are some clues to help you on your quest:

1. Start at The Westport Library, located at 20 Jesup Road in Westport, CT.

2.  Find the Children's Library (location inside the Library will vary in 2018 - 2019 as the Library undergoes major renovation.)

3.  The Butterflies Letterbox is shelved with children's books about butterflies.  Find a green binder with a spine label that reads:

Troop #50192

4.  The Fairytales Letterbox is shelved in the folklore section of the Children's Library.  Find a green binder with a spine label that reads:

What is Letterboxing?

"Letterboxing is an intriguing mix of puzzle solving, treasure hunting and rubber stamp artistry, topped off with the thrill of discovery."
~ The Letterboxer's Companion,
by Randy Hall

Looking for a Letterbox is like going on a quest.  A Letterbox hunter first creates an original rubbber stamp and then uses navigational skills to find hidden Letterboxes.  Letterboxes all have notebooks inside for hunters to make stamp mark and maybe even write a message. This is a great activity for traveling families

Thanks to Girl Scout Troop #50192 (and their leaders!) for introducing us to this fun and educational hobby.
