National Puzzle Day 2009

When President Obama campaigned on a platform of change, we were hoping he might consider making National Puzzle Day a national holiday. He didn't this year, but he's been dealing with some bigger issues.

On January 29 -- National Puzzle Day -- we provide a logic puzzle to drum up interest in National Library Week, which this year will be April 12-18. During that week, we have several puzzles for our students to solve for an opportunity to win prizes. (No prizes today, though. Sorry!)

Click here for this year's National Puzzle Day puzzle.

Answers to this puzzle will be posted on Chris' door on Friday.

For a chance to relive the past, we have all our prior puzzles on our National Library Week page.
