Canadian Library Month

Posted on ago

 October is Canadian Library Month and here at the Mannville Library we'd like to know why you choose to visit us.  Are you picking out a book, a movie, using the computers or needing the assistance from our staff?  Whatever the reason we'd love to hear it.  We have a bulletin board at the entrance which we would like you to write your reason on.  By the end of October we hope to have a full board.  Reading opens not only our minds but our imagination.

Our Movie Display

Posted on ago

Did you ever wonder how come, when you entered the library, there never seemed to be any new releases on the shelf?  It wasn't because we didn't have them, it was because they were all out.  NOW when you enter the library you'll be able to see what we have just purchased.  You may not be able to take it home that day but our staff will be more than happy to place a hold on it and when your name is next on the list you'll receive a text, email or phone call letting you know you ...

Fossil Findings

Posted on ago

 Local farmer Heather Thompson has been looking for and finding fossils for some time now.  A few years ago Heather's son found an interesting fossil which sparked an interest for Heather and her family. Upon learning of this fascinating hobby we asked Heather if she could bring some of her fossils into the library and share her findings with the Grade 3 and 4 classes of the Mannville School.  It was a real treat for the Grade 4s as this was part of their curriculum this year. ...
