EPL Librarian "Crushes" NPR Sunday Puzzle

Evanston Public Library Librarian Barbara Levie took on the NPR Sunday Puzzle last Sunday and emerged victorious.

Barbara works in Reference at the Main and at the North Branch.

Barbara asked Puzzlemaster Will Shortz since he majored in puzzles in college to name some classes he took.  Will answered "I created my own major - Enigmatology - the study of puzzles" ... great crossword answer.
