January is Puzzle Month
January is a good month to spend some quality time inside, especially when it’s cold and wet. In celebration of National Puzzle Month, the library will have a community puzzle table set up in our meeting room throughout the month. Come relax with us for a while and help complete our library jigsaw puzzle. There will be free cookies and coffee on offer for puzzlers as supplies last.
The library would like to thank the Gibsonville Friends O’ Rose Garden Club for their generous donation to the library last month. We have been working hard to update and improve the library inside and out, and it was a wonderful surprise to have it recognized by this great community organization.
