‘Pokémon Go’ draws visitors to the rail trail

Molly Virello of the library gives pointers to Sophie Shugru (9) and her Mom Jean

“Pokémon Go” is generating a lot of discussion. People seem to be polarized on the issue, but it’s hard to deny that it’s drawing locals outdoors this summer. Earlier this week, we spotted a number of kids and parents exploring the Southington rail trail and the virtual world in search of wild Pokémon, PokéStops and Pokémon gyms. Above, Southington librarian Molly Virello offers some pointers to Sophie Sugru, 9, and her mom, Jean.
