Alex Byrne, Youth Services librarian at the University Place Library (WA), decided to tape a crossword puzzle and a pencil to the wall. Anyone is welcome to add a word if they know one, turning this into a social crossword puzzle. How simple!
He plans to add a magnetic chessboard to the wall, too. Teens might enjoy the novelty of playing chess on the wall.
Not all collaboration has to be online, but offering fun ways to participate at the library — that’s cool!
