We have a large collection of donated jigsaws available to be borrowed. We have listed these Jigsaws (with pictures) in the catalogue follow the link at the top of the page.

We are happy to deliver/collect the jigsaws for free, but we will be making a small charge through membership of the Jigsaw Library. Membership of the library is £5 – which is £1 deposit and 4 credits. Each credit represents the loan of one jigsaw.

We have been donated the jigsaws and understand all are complete. If you find a piece missing please let us know so we can remove it from circulation and re-credit you.
