Puzzle Exchange Program

Love to do jigsaw puzzles? Have puzzles that you have done and want new ones? Then the Norwalk Public Library's new Puzzle Exchange Program might be the answer for you! Also, if you have any puzzles that need a new home please feel free to donate them for our program.

How does the program work?
