Abraham Lincoln at the library

Hear from Abraham Lincoln “himself” as he describes his frontier childhood, his rise to the presidency, and the twelve turbulent years that nearly destroyed our nation but instead resulted in a “new birth of freedom.” Lincoln is portrayed by professional presenter Kevin Wood. He will be at the Mayville Public Library on Wednesday, February 2nd, at 6:30 p.m.

Windowsill Herbs with Carol Shirk

Most herb lovers agree that freshly grown herbs are much better than dried or purchased. However, winter tends to put a cramp in what can be grown outside. Take heart; several culinary herbs can be easily grown inside with little effort.
Join Certified Master Gardener Carol Shirk for tips on growing herbs, which ones will do best inside, and how to move them outside when the weather warms.

Become a Friend of the Mayville Public Library

The FRIENDS founding officer is stepping down (NOT away!) to pursue a more behind-the-scenes role in supporting the Friends. We still need a president to take the reins. Could it be you? You don’t need to be an officer to be a FRIEND! Become a FRIEND for as little as $10 a year or FREE if you’re a teen! Join us in the Library Meeting Room on the 11th for some coffee, water, snacks, and/or sweets to find out more. Meet some of the other Friends! It’s an exciting time to be involved as a Friend of Mayville Public Library! Not only does the group continue to contribute to Library programming as it has for the past seven years by funding Summer Library Programs, the purchase of Teen materials, and a variety of staff-initiated events and programs. In addition, the group has pledged to set aside 50% of our fundraising for the Teen Section of the new Mayville Public Library.
