Enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles?
The library is playing host to the creation of the world's largest jigsaw puzzle--it's 40,000 pieces and split into 10, 4,000 piece parts! This will be a community driven art project. A section at a time, we will have the jigsaw puzzle on the tables upstairs by the paperbacks, allowing any person to sit down and work on it.
When it is entirely finished, the donor plans to then donate the final piece to a facility that can house it. Fully put together, the puzzle will be 6.25 ft. tall and 22.25 ft. long!
