Sign ups are now open for Story Time and Toddler Time at the Mannington Public Library!

We’re Hooked on Story Time! Learning to read begins before children start school. From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important skills that will help them learn to read. Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to learn to read once they begin school. 
Spring sessions to resume in February: “Toddler Time” a program for children up to 3 years of age meets on Tuesdays at 10:30 am, and “Story Time” a program for children 2-5 years of age meets on Tuesdays at 12:30 and/or Wednesdays at 10:30.

Call the Mannington Public Library at 304-986-2803, or follow one of these links to sign up today!

Tomorrow at the Mannington Public Library!

Pick up your copy of The Red Tent by Anita Diamant at Mannington Library and join the “Cover 2 Cover” book club on Thursday, January 17 at 1:30 p.m. “Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons.

Told in Dinah's voice, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of the mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. 
They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.” -Amazon
