(Updated 7/19) Celebrating the 54th anniversary of the moon landing, the Alexandria Library is also attempting a seemingly impossible feat: putting together a 1,000-piece puzzle of the moon in under two hours.

The James M. Duncan Jr. Branch Library at 2501 Commonwealth Avenue is hosting an all-ages race to put the puzzle together. The race is scheduled to run from 3-5 p.m. on Thursday, July 20.

“Join us for a two-hour sprint to build a 1,000 piece moon puzzle to celebrate the anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20th, 1969,” the library said in an event listing. “All ages and levels of puzzle enthusiasts welcome!”

From 4-corner finders to edge builders, the library said all are welcome to help the library build the moon.
