Join us on Saturday, August 27th at 10:30 for a Village PokeWalk. Our village is home to several locations where Pokemon GO players can collect virtual loot. We’ll gather at the library, then head out to visit nearby PokeStops. Who knows what Pokemon we might catch along the way? Our “safari” will end up back at the library for light refreshments. There might even be a Pokemon lure dropped at the library. Bringing a charged smartphone loaded with the Pokemon GO app is recommended, but not absolutely necessary. All ages welcome; children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. No registration needed.
