December 2019 Newsletter www.pickawaylib.org Holiday Hours: Library closed December 24 and 25 Library closed December 31 and January 1 Happy Holidays! Piecing Together A New Collection The Pickaway County Library is now loaning jigsaw puzzles. Patrons can choose from a variety of sizes—500 pieces up to 2,000 pieces—and a variety of subject matter—from landscapes to folk art to local history. The idea for the collection of puzzles was encouraged by the popularity of collaborative puzzles at the Main Library. “We open a puzzle and patrons put it together over the course of a few days or a week,” says librarian Sarah Hintz. “Some patrons put in just one piece while others will spend the afternoon working the puzzle.” The puzzles are just the latest non-book items to be loaned. The library has been loaning internet hotspots, guitars and ukuleles since 2018. to the 2019 Sponsors of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Pickaway County Additional thanks to the many private individuals who have donated to make this program a success.
