Reta Mackay helps sort puzzles leading up to the 2010 Friends of the Library Puzzle Sale.

Chilliwack Library puzzle sale needs puzzles

The 12th annual Friends of the Chilliwack Library puzzle sale is on Feb. 3-4 at the Chilliwack Library.

Puzzles aren’t just for kids, they’re for adults and seniors too.

Not only do they provide hours of enjoyment, they tap into hand-eye coordination, cognitive skills, and fine motor skills all the while boosting brain power.

Next month, Friends of the Chilliwack Library will have a one-stop shop to fulfill all your puzzle needs.

But first, it needs puzzles.

The non-profit organization is seeking a wide range of new and used, complete puzzles that include kids puzzles, scenic puzzles, double-sided puzzles, mosaic puzzles, easy, moderate, difficult puzzles, and more.

“So far, this year, we have in stock a variety of borderless, shaped, mystery and regular puzzles,” said Claire Bouchard, of Friends of the Chilliwack Library.

It needs more.

Anyone who donates will receive a half off coupon for each puzzle donated to be used at the sale.

Donations can be dropped off in the Chilliwack Library on First Ave.

The 12th annual Friends of the Chilliwack Library Puzzle Sale is on Feb. 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The sale accepts cash or cheques only – no Interac.

Fundraisers like the puzzle sale have helped purchase new books, chairs, trolleys, and other needed equipment for the library.

In 2011, Friends of the Chilliwack Library raised over $8,000.
