Look for our bright orange MAPsacks, check one out and go outside!
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 new themes all the time!
