It’s official! This week is “National Library Week” in Manchester! Today Mayor Ted Gatsas visited the library and issued a proclamation making it so. Every year there is a different theme for National Library Week, and this year the theme is “Libraries Transform”.
Libraries all across the country have been working hard to stay relevant in today’s rapidly changing environment and the Manchester City Library is no exception to that trend. Not only have we transformed and renovated the physical buildings of both the Main Branch and the West Branch libraries, we are also constantly working to provide you, our public, with access to new services, new technology, online resources, and that new bestseller or Blu-Ray DVD you’re looking for.
This week let this encourage you to visit the library at one or more of our locations: the Carpenter Memorial Library Building on Pine Street, the West Manchester Branch Library at 76 Main Street on the West Side, or our online branch library on the Internet.
Tuesday April 11th – National Library Workers Day (We get to wear jeans.)
Wednesday April 12th – Manchester City Library Foundation Wine Toss, Beer and Spirits Fundraiser (contact Mary G. at 624-6550 to RSVP)
Friday April 14th – Patron Appreciation Day (Stop by for a snack and say hello.)
Saturday April 15th – The Spring 10$ a Bag Library Book Sale (The line forms early!)
We are glad to have you along with us for the ride, working together, as libraries transform.
See you at the library!
