Crazy Days Of Summer

Posted on ago

Thank you to everyone who, despite the weather, showed up at the library for what was supposed to be a bright sunny day to host a BBQ.  At least that's what we were hoping for way back when, when we booked it.  Special thanks to the Cornerstone Co-op for supporting organizations such as ours.  We are community strong.

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!

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.
