Puzzling Via Your Library

Offering a library crossword club is a fantastic way for a group of library patrons who share a passion for puzzling to get together especially given that libraries are re-opening to their communities after COVID lockdowns.

It also gives the wonderful opportunity to enjoy connecting with like-minded cruciverbalists near and far.  We also welcome your suggestions about the puzzle topics you would like covered.

When your library becomes a Clue Detective subscriber, all patrons get full access as part of their membership.  They can solve puzzles in the library or remotely – at home, in your favourite cafe or sitting on a park bench; the opportunities are endless!

Solving online puzzles is an activity that can be used as part of a library services program for all ages. It ticks many boxes.  While participants are solving their favourite puzzle, and having fun with friends, they can also enjoying the benefits of boosting their digital literacy by becoming more familiar with using their device, which will translate into using it for other activities.  It can also aid patrons’ mental health.
