Sorry, this box has been stolen.
My grandson and I are enjoying letterboxing. We found several letterboxes at various libraries around Columbus and enjoyed the idea of being able to letterbox during inclement weather. We are very enthusiastic letterboxers and share our activity with his first grade class. We got the idea to hide a letterbox in the Children's section of 2 libraries.

Our box is placed on the shelf behind the picture book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar in the Westerville Library located at 126 S. State St. There is a stamp and notebook in a cardboard box that slides out like a drawer. It is attached behind the shelf where The Very Hungry Caterpillar would be found. The Westerville Library has 3 copies and they were all checked out when we hid the box.

SHHH!!! The library staff does not know that the letterbox is there. Please don't give away the secret. I hope you find our box enjoy finding out what the caterpillar becomes. This box is missing.
