SARATOGA SPRINGS — There may be over 100,000 “Little Free Libraries” in the world but Saratoga Springs may be the very first to host a “Jigsaw Puzzle Exchange Box.”
Located on North Street, the “Puzzle Exchange Box” houses puzzles on two shelves that keep them protected from the elements and accessible to neighbors. This one-of-a-kind creation was erected by local resident Lauren Granahan.
“There are no real rules” says Lauren. “You can take a puzzle and leave a puzzle or just take a puzzle or drop one off.”
So far there has been great turnaround and the puzzle box has stayed consistently stocked with a variety of puzzles for all levels of puzzle enthusiasts. Neighbors have been getting quite a kick out of it. Granahan is also known for putting up the dog treat and waste bag box for area puppies and their owners.
