Storytime

We haven't had Storytime for quite some time in the library but we are starting again Thursday, September 6th at 9:30 am.  Mike Myhovich has graciously agreed to donate time from his job to read to the children for 20 - 30 minutes every Thursday.  We welcome everyone to bring their children into the library to listen to stories and enjoy a light snack.

Tissue Turtle Craft

Posted on ago

 Sorry for the mix up but today's craft is the tissue turtle.  Stop in and pick up the supplies and instructions on how to create this paper turtle. It's easy to take everything home and do the craft in your own spare time.   Have fun!

Summer Crafts

Posted on ago

With the summer months being busy for everyone we have decided that instead of hosting a craft day we will set out supplies and instructions so all you have to do is drop in pick up what is needed and complete the crafts at home when you have time. Let us know what you think by emailing librarian@mannvillelibrary.ab.ca.

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 ...
