New stories and puzzle history

I was so sad to have to miss the presentation on Sunday night by Colin Wroblewski from White Mountain Puzzles. Apparently, he spoke to an enthusiastic crowd of puzzlers and there was some interest in a jigsaw puzzle competition. Stay tuned for more information about that in the future. Jackson Flicks was kind enough to film the lecture so those of us who couldn’t be there can still enjoy. I posted the video on our programs page just now.

Meredith was out on skiing this weekend and changed both stories on our book trails. The Ellis River/Eskergo Trail now features Learning to Ski with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen. The Library Book Trail is now hosting The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.

One winter morning, Mr. Magee and his little dog, Dee, head out bright and early to learn how to ski. But what begins as a pleasant day in the snow quickly goes downhill when a run-in with a curious moose sends them flying through the air and hanging above an abyss! How will Dee and Magee find their way out of this snowy situation?
