Geocache Description:

An easy looking cache.... Please handle the cache carefully! In summer, this is a Double Cache. Two for the price of one. Find the original cache first (follow coordinates), then look for the big book dispensing cache (see description below). In winter, I remove the book cache box as it gets too wet.

Please only take out the plastic cache container, NOT the METAL one! Of if you do, please get the pebbles out of the hole again so that the metal container fits flush into the hide. Thanks.
The library of Lisdoonvarna must be the smallest in the world. It consists of exactly what you can see in the picture. And yet, Lisdoonvarna Public Library has a stock of over 3,200 books for adults, and 3,300 books for children. There is a free public access internet PC also. The opening of the new branch took place in November 1999. It is situated in the old Iron and Magnesia Pump Room and incorporates a little public park. 

Lisdoonvarna developed into a tourist centre as early as the mid 18th century when the beneficial effects of its mineral waters were discovered. People travelled from near and far to bathe in and drink the mineral waters which are rich in iron, sulphur, magnesium and calcium and were said to provide relief for certain diseases. It was because of the popularity of these mineral springs and the huge amount of people coming here that led to the Lisdoonvarna "matchmaking tradition". The tradition is still celebrated with a festival held in its honour throughout the month of September.

In the busier summer months, I turn this cache into a double cache to honour its location at the library! Once you have found the first cache, the second should not be a problem. It is above the first cache. The box contains books and sometimes DVDs. Please take whatever you like and as many as you like. There is absolutely no need to swap or put something back into the box. I have sorted through my books and am trying to find new homes for those I have already read, and I will continuously fill up the cache box. So you are very welcome to them, and don't forget to mention your visit to the book cache in your online log as well!
