Stop by and see the changes we have been making in our children’s area! Our old orange carpet has been replaced. We had grown quite fond of it, but the new carpet is sooo soft we are already over the loss. You will also notice some new shelving and our children’s computers are being replaced with iPads. We are loading them with games and activities for your little ones. They should be available soon, we are just waiting for cases. We have decided to keep them behind the Circulation Desk so that they won’t be the first thing the kids run to. We know that sometimes it is hard to get the kids interested in a story or a game when they are distracted by technology! If you would like to use one, ask for it at the Circulation Desk. You must have a Library Card to use them.

We would like to thank a few organizations and many people for the new purchases. Our iPads have been purchased with memorial donations that were made to the Library. We are honored that you chose the Library as a place to send your tributes and hope that the sight of happy children playing will honor the memory of your loved one. The new carpet and installation was purchased and organized by the Town of Mayerthorpe. The new bookshelves were purchased in part by Lac Ste. Anne County and in part by the Friends of the Mayerthorpe Public Library Society. Thank you everyone.
