Mayville Library Open House Celebrates 114 Year History

(Mayville) In celebration of the Mayville Library’s 114th birthday, the Mayville Public Library will host an open house birthday celebration for community members. Families are encouraged to stop in to have a piece of birthday cake, register for a library card, do birthday or fall themed crafts and check out the new children’s computer, which was purchased for the library and the children of the community by the Friends of the Mayville Public Library.


The event will also feature the thoughts and ideas developed by the Library Exploratory Committee which are the result of months of state-wide library visits and research. Community members will be able to check out picture boards with new ideas for future development and most importantly, to share their own ideas for the new community center and library.


Leading up to the free community celebration, the Friends of the Mayville Library will be hosting a basket raffle at the library with a large variety of baskets for everyone. Tickets are $1.00 each or six tickets for $5.00. Raffle tickets may be purchased at the library now and throughout the open house event. All funds benefit the Mayville Public Library. Winners will be chosen on November 3rd.  The Open house event will be Friday November 2nd from 2pm to 6, and Saturday November 3rd from 10am till 2.
