We bought these puzzles because we thought they would be great gifts or vacation take-alongs. They haven’t sold as well as we would have liked, probably because we volunteers aren’t the best sales people. Here’s the information from our web pages.
Chico Friends have 500-piece jigsaw puzzles available for a $10 donation. Created from a limited edition poster titled “Love Your Library” by local artist Steve Ferchaud, these puzzles are a fun format for the artwork from this locally and nationally known illustrator, designer and artist. Steve is in spirit and literally a friend of the Butte County Library, and he has volunteered his time and talent at many events. “Love Your Library” prints have been for sale at Chico Branch for several years. Since the print is colorful, lively, and appealing to all ages, it has been made into this new form. Need a gift for a child or adult–or simply a pleasant diversion? You can view a framed puzzle on display at the library and you can purchase copies there by asking at the front desk. Puzzles are also available at First Friday book sales and other Friends’ special events. The modest cost is $8 (2 for $15); all profits go to the Friends to purchase library materials and supply library needs.
