Jigsaw Puzzles: for Communities who like to build together 

Its always nice to face off against a jigsaw puzzle with community friends. A great way to visit while feeling the satisfaction of getting that elusive piece in the right place.

We will have a jigsaw puzzle set up on a table in the basement and you are welcome to join us during the library open hours.
