Each month we receive new books at Neepawa Library and the best part of unpacking the boxes is taking a few minutes to read each and every picture book that arrives.
I listen to audiobooks. Sure, I could read books…if I had time to sit and read without interruptions. Or, I could read in the car…if I wasn’t driving! I love listening to audiobooks because when I cannot pick up a book to read, I can still enjoy stories that take me to interesting places with diverse characters who make awkward mistakes or take on adventures that are beyond my abilities.

Love is in the air at the Neepawa Library! February is “I Love to Read” month and we love to introduce readers to new authors and titles, so once again we’re offering Blind Date With a Book! We have a number of books wrapped in paper to hide the title and author name. You pick one or two, take them home, and enjoy!

Now that the new year is approaching and we’re all thinking about our goals for 2018, how about resolving to read a few more books this year? And the best way to know if you are actually reading or listening to more books is to track your reading.
Aaah, December is here! Sparkly decorations, house lights and snow on the ground turn our attention to the season of celebrating the people who give us joy. Whether it’s a gift of companionship, food, a warm handcrafted item, or simply the beginning of a new tradition, there’s still lots of time to make plans for this year. If you are looking for inspiration, Neepawa Library has craft and recipe books, as well as magazines with seasonal issues on our shelves.

Summer was busy at Neepawa Library, where we celebrated all things Canada in honour of our country’s sesquicentennial. Young readers borrowed many, many books and read many, many pages! They will have a definite advantage starting school this fall as their eager brains are still primed from all the reading they did this summer. Congratulations to everyone who participated in our Summer Reading Program! And a big Thank you!
Calling all summer readers!
Neepawa Library has lots of reading options for this summer, whether you want some fun picture books for your young readers or a little light fiction for the beach.
Summer Reading Club is well underway and runs all summer. The theme this year is Canada and the program is for all ages, from those who still need a little help to read to those who are reading on their own, including teens.

Have you thought about the many ways your local tax dollars work for you? Apart from improving town infrastructure and building a much-needed new firehall, there’s a lot of other services available to Neepawa residents that don’t get much public discussion. Among them is the Neepawa Public Library.

Family History Series
In this year of the nation’s sesquicentennial, many of us are thinking not just of Canada’s history, but of our own family histories in this country and province. To inspire and encourage would-be genealogists, Neepawa Library is pleased to present the following series of events:
On May 11 at 5:30 pm, Sharron Arksey of Langruth will be presenting her new novel, The Waiting Place.
