ATHOL — The town’s library will be celebrating National Puzzle Day on Saturday, Jan. 28. National Puzzle Day is the perfect day to do a little brain exercise. Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, or sudoku, puzzles engage the brain in more ways than one. Scientists have discovered that when working on a jigsaw puzzle, people utilize both sides of the brain, improving memory, cognitive function and problem solving skills in the process.

The library will have jigsaw puzzles out on tables both upstairs and down (and puzzles to borrow), sudoku, brain teasers and more. Drop in any time during library hours (9:30 a.m.–1 p.m. on Saturdays). This event is free and registration isn’t required. All ages welcome.
