An event for all ages: Wednesday, January 29, is National Puzzle Day, and the Smyrna Public Library invites you to come from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. to put together or to solve a variety of types of puzzles. There will be jigsaw puzzles, crossword and word search puzzles, and Sudoku available. If you prefer a different sort of activity to puzzles, we have board games and card games and coloring. We will have refreshments, and children can go home with free books courtesy of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Bring the whole family!
The Smyrna Public Library will be CLOSED Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day in observance of the holidays. The regular schedule will be followed for the remaining days in between. We wish you a safe and joyous holiday.
