Folks won’t be able to get their hands on gently used puzzles from the Sardis Library in February.
The annual Puzzle Sale, hosted by the Friends of the Chilliwack Libraries Society, has been cancelled for 2021.
Normally at the start of the new year, the Sardis Library gets flooded with donations of thousands of puzzles leading up to the two-day fundraiser puzzle sale in February.
But now, due to COVID-19, people are being asked not to bring their donations of puzzles to the library this year.
Typically, all of the money raised each year from the event would go towards programs and items for the Chilliwack, Sardis and Yarrow libraries. In the past, the Friends have purchased books, LEGO, artwork, furniture for children’s areas of the libraries, and more.
The Friends of the Chilliwack Libraries Society is a volunteer organization that supports the library through advocacy, fundraising and assistance with various projects and programs.
