FactCite is a fully searchable online information resource brought to you by The Lincoln Library Press. It enables student researchers and teachers to easily navigate through a vast amount of information. Student researchers can search or browse the vast selection of textual information as well as make use of other helpful features, such as printable full-color and outline illustrations and maps. Bonus material in our Greek & Roman section enhances comprehension with features such as a gods and heroes equivalency chart, a Greek alphabet chart, and classroom plays. You need a valid Manchester Public Library card to access the database.

The Library is open on Sundays from 1 – 5 PM until March 29, 2015.

The Manchester Public Library is doing the #icebucketchallenge to help #strikeoutals! We nominate the other Cape Ann Public Libraries, the Friends of the Manchester Library, and the Manchester Library Trustees. You have 24 hours to complete this challenge or donate $100. Even if you complete it, don’t forget to donate at www.alsa.org/donate/.

Check out the video on our Facebook Page!

 

 

 

For quick, efficient, and accurate service, please bring your library card when you visit the Library.

Librarians often look patrons up in the database, as a convenience to patrons, but lately the practice has led to several incidents of books being charged to the wrong person. Additionally, with summer visitors, we do not recognize every patron. Searching for a patron in the database takes minutes and is open to mistakes; scanning a library card is quick and accurate.

This summer we will offer tokens to those who bring their library card (or correctly memorize their barcode). Accumulate 10 tokens to redeem for a treat, a $5 gift certificate to Captain Dusty’s or the Coffee Cup. Librarians hope the habit will stick in the fall.

(July 1 – Labor Day)
