Promoting Parks and Recreation
The Goffstown Public Library in New Hampshire circulates two regional backpacks. They both have a compass, navigation guide and binoculars (waterproof pair in the seacoast pack). The library did not want to make them so full that the borrower couldn't fit their own personal stuff in as well. A great partner with the state parks pass.
