New puzzle exchange program begins at library
The Hayden Public Library is starting a jigsaw puzzle exchange program. The idea came from a local citizen who has retired and enjoys working on puzzles to keep his mind engaged. He would like to donate puzzles so that others can come to the library and get a free puzzle to take home and enjoy. The puzzles will be at library and can be shared by anyone who wants one. Bring puzzles that have been gently used and have all the pieces. There will also be a puzzle set out on a table in the library to work on by patrons. For more information or questions, call 970-276-3777.
