Do you love jigsaw puzzles but are tired of them taking up most of the dining room table?  Does your blood run cold when you hear the quiet thunk of pieces going up the vacuum?   We have puzzles at the library!  Come down and start one or work on an existing one!  Working on a puzzle while surrounded by books on a fall day?  Perfect.
