Online Puzzle Games Club Launched at South Australian Library

Launching a Puzzle Club at Your Library Has Huge Benefits!

Starting a online puzzle club at your library introduces a wonderful asset to your range of activities.  Once your patrons become accustomed to it, they will look forward to solving a daily puzzle or quiz.  They can choose to join in the organised puzzling activities, but at the same time, they can also solve puzzles whenever they wish, either in the library or elsewhere.  All they need is their library card.

Clue Detective Puzzling Library Case Study: Brighton Library – City of Holdfast Bay

Utilising their annual subscription to the Clue Detective’s Online Puzzles Portal, the staff at South Australia’s Brighton Library (City of Holdfast Bay) started their club in early 2018.  It has proved to be a great success!  Get togethers are held once month, and a typical session can include A (Clue Detective) On This Day Trivia Quiz, crosswords and codewords.  “Our group really enjoys the On This Day Trivia Quiz…” Puzzle Club Co-ordinator Christine Kennedy says.  “We always aim to improve our result with every quiz we tackle….”

The Advantages of Solving Puzzle Games As A Group

Solving puzzles as a group is very rewarding. Each puzzle is a unique problem, and to solve it relies on being able to draw on everyone’s knowledge. Being a member of a puzzle club helps participants to build their individual general knowledge, and to share what they already know by actively contributing to the group. They also improve their logic and vocabulary skills. Solving puzzles is a wonderful way to maintain good brain healthParticipants enjoy a (regular) activity that is fun, allows them to socially interact and make new friends.
