[ARCHIVED] MTPL’s Weekly “Did You Know?” Series

Did you know that Manheim Township Public Library had more than half a million checkouts of books, media items, board games and the lawn games collection in 2022? In addition to all the free resources available every day, the library hosted 530 free programs in 2022 with 10,300 community attendees. We remain committed to our mission of being a gathering place where curious minds are nurtured and transformed. As the busiest library in Lancaster County, we are asking for your support.

Each week in January, you have received a new “Did You Know?” email detailing information about the library and sharing a way that you can help support MTPL in 2023. Here’s the grand finale…
