We now have several sets of Crazy Games in the library for students to checkout. Each Crazy Games has nine puzzle cards that one forms into a 3 x 3 grid; each side that touches must match. There are only two solutions per puzzle.
Why do we circulate puzzles in the library? Studies have shown that working on puzzles increases concentration, expands creativity, stimulates critical thinking and problem solving, and is good for improving visualization skills. Do them with a friend and you can add in collaboration as a benefit! We also circulation chess, cribbage, and Scrabble.
I love October baseball. It was during a summer camping trip in the mid 1970s, though, that I first discovered the game. Those hot, lazy days by the river listening to the radio broadcasts with my dad and other male members of my family were the beginning of my love affair with the game. Unlike the 70s, when it seemed it was mostly men and boys who followed the game, now I watch and listen with female friends and co-workers as well as males. Whatever your age or your team, check out one of these baseball books from our collection.
