Marie is the librarian of Mineral Town. She’s also Anna and Basil’s daughter, and loves it when people come to visit the library to read.

Her birthday is on Winter 20th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, her birthday will be on Winter 23rd instead.

This guide will tell you all you need to know about maintaining a relationship with Marie.

 

Schedule

Marie is often in the Library 24/7 except for sunny Mondays where she takes the day off to spend at Mother’s Lake. Otherwise you can typically find her chilling at Basil’s house.
