According to the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory, a manipulative is “any physical object (e.g., blocks, toothpicks, coins) that can be used to represent or model a problem situation or develop a mathematical concept.”

Manipulatives are in the Curriculum Collection on the 2nd floor.  When you reach the 2nd floor look for the row of books with the Curriculum Collection sign (see photo).
