Libraries are not just books

Libraries Are Not JUST Books!
 
Did you know that the library has a lot more to offer you than just books? Don’t get me wrong books are amazing little bundles of paper that can transport you through time and space into different worlds with intriguing and wonderful characters; but that is not all that the library has!

Freedom to Read Week & New Contest

Freedom to Read Week & New Contest
 
February 25 to March 3 is Freedom to Read Week at the library. It is at this time that we encourage all Canadians to think about what it means to have the right to read whatever material we choose. Intellectual Freedom is something we should all be grateful for. 
 
Congratulations to the winner of the I Love to Read Month Crossword Puzzle!

Home Service

Are You Stuck at Home? Need Something to Read?
 
One service provided by the Glenboro/South Cypress Library that not many people know about is Home Visits. If you are a person who resides within the town of Glenboro and are unable to venture to the library, I am willing to bring library materials to you. All you need to do is give me a call at the library and answer a few questions pertaining to the types of material that you are looking for.

February is I Love to Read Month

I Love to Read Month
 
February is I love to Read Month in Manitoba! So why not throw a few little twists into your reading ventures.  This month the library will be offering a blind date with a book.  Pop by and you will find different books all wrapped up in paper. A clue will be provided to give you an idea of what each particular book is about.

Glenboro Library

Two topics for you this month . . .
 
  • OverDrive Welcomes Libby 
 
Are you having issues with OverDrive? Don’t fret! OverDrive has developed a new and easier to use app called Libby. All you have to do is download Libby onto your tablet or device and re-enter your library information. Libby is available from the App Store, Google Play, or Microsoft depending on your device. All of your loans will automatically be transferred from Overdrive over to Libby.

Canadian Library Month

Canadian Library Month
 
What do libraries mean to you? Would you believe that there are many who would argue that libraries serve no purpose at all? They believe that libraries should be done away with altogether, as they see them as a waste of money and resources that could be used somewhere else. To these individuals, libraries are seen as just a place that stores dusty old books.

Summer Programs

Hello Everyone!
 
Summer is upon us once again, which means that it is time for summer programming here at the library! This year we have a variety of clubs and contests for all ages. For the adults we have the Adult Summer Reading Club where participants are invited to submit reviews on the books they have read and will be eligible to win a prize! Reviews can be submitted to programs@wmrl.ca or at their local library branch.
