Dewey Could Do It Multi-Cache

This cache has been archived.

krfoo: I've left this disabled for far too much time. The only right thing to do is archive, since I am out of town for most of the summer. Perhaps we'll replace and relist... we've already made the new host~

Geocache Description:

Not sure how to catalogue this multi... perhaps non-fiction?

This cache is a two-parter which will take you into the Evanston Public Library. It's designed to make you think a bit after part one, but you don't need to do any research - just apply basic library skills. At the part one velcro/magnetic cache you will get the guide for part two . You will have to go into the library to check out the cache and sign the log book.

Part 1 can be be found anytime. Part 2 can only be accessed during library operating hours (Monday – Thursday 9 am to 9 pm; Friday - Saturday 9am to 6 pm; Sunday noon to 6pm).

This hide has been placed with permission, but do NOT bother the library staff.

>>>>Update: Difficulty has been bumped up to 2.5 stars. If you hit an impasse for Part 2, please reach out to me for a hint.

Some interesting facts on the Evanston Public Library (not related to finding this cache):

The library is home to a pair of peregrine falcons that nest on one of the roof ledges. The falcons (Nona and Squawker) have returned every spring since 2004 and have their own facebook page.

The building, designed by Joseph Powell, has significant architectural merit and is the result of an international design competition. The structure and interior have been featured in many academic critiques and are recipients of numerous design awards.

Be sure to check out the sculpture, "Ghostwriter," hanging from the ceiling in the main stairwell. It is made up of more than 3,000 varied cast metal forms precisely suspended by 900 descending cables. When seen from a proper angle, a large head is revealed within an abstract spiral form.

EPL's origins can be traced back to 1733 when Rebecca Mulford, an early settler and educated woman, brought the first collection of books to the area.

Enjoy the art and ambience as you find this cache and appreciate that the falcons keep the pigeons at bay!
