MAPSacks!

Be ready for spring explorations!  Look for our 3 MAPsacks Scoop on Poop, Ants & Snakes…

Baby its cold outside, but you can still have a fun adventure with our MAPsacks and learn about some awesome creatures, or how they “work”.mapsacks_slider

A MAPSack is a backpack containing stories, nature guides, activity sheets, a logbook and a free family pass to enjoy the Rideau Valley Conservation Areas and Parks Ontario family pass.
MAPSacks is a joint library project created by the Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Council and Rideau Lakes Public Library as part of the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Healthy Communities Partnership.  The MAPSacks are a rotating collection among the Libraries of Leeds & Grenville so watch for other sacks!

The loan period for MAPSacks is one week. When you return your MAPSack check the inventory list to ensure all of the items are returned.
