The Ramapo Catskill Library System's I Spy project has been based on a very successful project initiated by the Mohawk Valley Library Association.
After admiring the MVLA site, the Youth Services Technology Users Group (YSTUG) of the Ramapo Catskill Library System decided to investigate starting their own I Spy project. MVLA encouraged other libraries to imitate their project; and also allowed RCLS to use the graphics originally created for the MVLA I Spy project.
However, without any grant or budget, RCLS had to scale down some of the features of MVLA's project. We did not produce t-shirts, brochures, or game cards; nor did we sponsor walking tours in conjunction with our project.
