Mary is a villager of Mineral Town. She lives with her father, Basil, and mother, Anna, in the building connected to the Library that she lovingly manages. She's prone to assisting any in need. Gray is the rival for Mary.

Mary is the sweet, kind, polite owner of the library. Alas, it's not what she truly wants to do in this town. Although shy, Mary opens up to the protagonist once he befriends her. She's interested in her father's work, the nature of the town, and adores reading books.

The protagonist meets Mary when entering the Library for the first time. Her birthday is on the 20th of Winter, or on the 25th of Winter if your birthday is on the 20th.

Normal Thinking


To marry Mary, it's essential to raise her heart to orange or red. This can simply be accomplished by having the protagonist speak to her every day and partaking in festivals with her. To speed up progress, give her foraged items, livestock products or flowers. Once Mary's heart reaches orange, the Blue Feather will become available at the supermarket for _______. After upgrading the house to the Second House Extension, the protagonist may propose to Mary for marriage.

Gray will marry Mary if the protagonist doesn't.
