Since March, more books have been read and more jigsaws completed, as people looked for ways to pass the time at home.
During the first lockdown a group of OiR members started sharing books and jigsaws.
This has continued as members feel safer sharing amongst ourselves, rather than borrowing from the library or visiting the charity shops.
We now have quite a range of books – both fiction and non-fiction – including some current best sellers, and some lovely jigsaws.
If you want to see a review or just get more information on a specific book, just “Google it”!
Below are pictures of the jigsaws available to borrow.
Below are pictures of wasgij puzzles available to borrow
Wasgij (which is Jigsaw spelled backwards) is a range of fun jigsaw puzzles. You have to use your imagination and the clues provided to piece together a completely different picture than what you see on the front of the box. There are a variety of wasgijs:
- What are they looking at?’ – you imagine that you are one of the characters in the scene printed on the box and piece together what they are looking at.
- Destiny wasgijs – ‘Time Travelling’ – you imagine how the scene will look in the modern day and how the characters and surroundings have changed from the scene printed on the box.
- Mystery wasgijs – ‘What Happens Next’. You imagine what turn of events are about to happen to the characters in the image printed on the box.
These items are stored in the Group Leader’s spare bedroom, untouched between one loan and the next.
From the lists, available above, people choose what they would like to borrow and let her know. When she gets a request, she washes her hands, puts the book or jigsaw in a poly bag and leaves it behind her storm door. It is then collected by the member.
When the item is returned, in the bag and left behind the door again, the item is set aside for 3 days then put back on the pile.
Delivery can be arranged for those without transport.
