We now have a Letterbox hidden in the Library!
Can you find it?

Book Of SecretsBox #295632

Letterboxing is like a treasure-hunt!  Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in a personal journal, then use their own rubber stamp, called a signature stamp, to stamp into the letterbox’s logbook. Have fun!
