We are rationalising the jigsaws in order to make space for new ones.

We have stopped stocking jigsaws over 1000 pieces.

There is no longer online ordering for jigsaws - come to the library and choose!

The rest are now grouped in 2 sections

  1. 1000 pieces

  2. 500 pieces (includes those less than 500)

We have introduced a small selection of Children's jigsaws

Hand sanitiser is provided and must be used
