Puzzling at the Library
We almost always have a puzzle in process at our "puzzle table" with anywhere from 500 to 1500 pieces. Stop by and see if you can figure out where a few of them go! Contributions to this group effort are welcome!
Additionally, we have periodic puzzle contests where teams compete for prizes to see who can complete their puzzle first.
