Calling All Librarians: Puzzle & Game Swap Event

Inspired by the Renegade Reference of West Central Illinois networking group, the library hosted a puzzle and game swap in May. The community (including the activity directors of local retirement facilities, game shop owners, and even a local puzzle company) was invited to donate games and puzzles in good condition ahead of the event in exchange for swap tickets. Ticket holders enjoyed priority “admission” to the swap, with day-of swappers welcomed during the second hour. Serious swappers arrived early, beelining directly to the table with their item of choice – 1000 piece puzzles were especially popular – and 89 items were swapped within the first 15 minutes! This event could not have succeeded without the contributions of the community, so thank you!
