After six months of renovations the staff of the Manchester City Library are excited to announce the grand Re-Opening of our Children’s Room on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 9:30 am.  There have been many changes to the room to improve services to our youngest library visitors.  The park theme room is bright, open and inviting. Our newly combined circulation and information desks helped to create more public space for visitors to enjoy.   You will find a dedicated toddler area surrounded by some of the historic buildings of Manchester!  The new layout also includes a more functional children’s computer area, various sized tables and chairs as well as a reading nook area just for kids!  Staff have also been busy adding new collection items for your enjoyment. 

Our special thanks to the following organizations for their financial support of the project: The Manchester City Library Foundation, the Manchester City Library Board of Trustees, the Charles & Christine Zoulias Family Fund, the Cogswell Benevolent Trust, Digital Federal Credit Union, the McIninch Foundation, the Norwin S. & Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation, the Samuel P. Hunt Foundation and our Annual Library Donors. 

And we especially thank our contractors, vendors, design team and colleagues at the City’s Facilities Division for their dedication in making our vision a reality. Your generosity and team spirit has created a space for many children to enjoy!

Please join us at our Open House on Saturday, April 20th from 12-2 pm. For more information please call us at 624-6550 ext. 3328.

A Year of Rembrandt

April 10th, 2019 · Art Room, Books, City Library, Main Branch, News, Trustees

During 2019 or the ‘Year of Rembrandt‘ artists around the world will be celebrating the anniversary of one of the world’s most respected artists, Rembrandt van Rijn. Since his death 350 years ago, he is remembered as the great master of the Golden Age and for his iconic masterpiece, the Night Watch. Tragically, his painting “The Storm on the Sea of Galilee” is still missing from Boston’s Isabella Stuart Gardner museum. As you might expect, the great gallery the Rijksmuseum in Holland will be putting on a huge exhibit showing all of their 400 Rembrandt works of art at once. Can’t make it to Holland? Well come on into the library and check out one or two of our lavish art books featuring his art or read a biography about his fascinating life.

Guess what day it is?

April 1st, 2019 · Books, Children, City Library, E-Books, Grades 6-12, Main Branch, NH Room, Teens, Trustees, West Branch

Q. How many reference librarians does it take to change a light bulb? A. Well, what kind of light bulb were you thinking about?

Hey folks it’s April Fool’s Day and the joke’s on us! Have some fun today – tell some jokes, watch a favorite comedy or read a funny book or three. Funny thing is, we have lots of goodies here at the library to tickle your fancy and make you laugh. We hope this takes the edge off of your “Case of the Mondays”.

What do you do if your pet starts eating your library book?
Take the words right out of their mouth.
Librarian: Did you enjoy reading Moby Dick? Patron: I couldn’t finish it. I got seasick! And please don’t even get me started on any knock, knock jokes. ☺ Happy April Fool’s Day.

See you at the library!
