How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a Puzzle Geocache - The coordinates should lead you to the front door of one of our libraries. Once inside armed with the clue below, you will solve several small puzzles/riddles that will lead you to a regular sized cache with a log book and items for trade!

Puzzle clues are family friendly and can be enjoyed by teens as well as adults. You might learn a thing or two about the library in the process!

This is an "Authorized Library Placed Geocache"

Available Only During Business Hours - You should allow up to 30-40 minutes to not be rushed to solve the puzzles/riddles that will lead you to the geocache. So in other words, do not attempt to find too close to closing time!

Geocache Available:
TU & TH | 10 am - 8 pm
WE, FR & SA | 10 am - 6 pm
SU & MO | Closed

(Closed on most Government Observed Holidays including Arbor Day)

This is your Clue:
Dewey Decimal System Call #917.304

Search the non-fiction section for a group of books with this call number. Once you locate them, look underneath the shelf for your first clue! We encourage you to explore the library, look around, examine things. When you think you are close to solving a clue, by all means, look up, look down, look underneath, inside, look behind for your next clue!

A pen and paper to take notes or write puzzle problems down to help solve clues along the way will be useful. Please DO NOT REMOVE the clues. Some might be in hard to see locations. Please leave intact for the next geocacher! Also, Smart phones and the internet searches can be helpful as well to solve some of the clues if pedestrian means are not proving fruitful. You are welcome to use our computers with your library card, or our 15 minute express computer if you do not have an Omaha Public Library card.
