Summer packed with programs!
Marathon County Public Library locations across the county will be full of "underground"-themed activities for children, teens and adults during our 2013 Summer Library Program!

Children can "Dig Into Reading" and do their choices of suggested activities to complete an archeological-themed reading log. Reading books is part of it, but kids also are encouraged to attend library events and work on reading-based activities.

In addition to art parties, a scavenger hunt, movie nights and a teen night at the aquarium, teenagers can take part in our "Beneath the Surface" summer-long program. It may take a little work – read 15 books and complete five activities to receive a reward – but you get to choose the books (even graphic novels) and the activities.

As part of the "Groundbreaking Reads" adult program, patrons around the county will decide the most influential book in Marathon County in our Literary Smackdown competition. A March Madness-style bracket pits well-known works of fiction and non-fiction against each other in a battle for supremacy. For adults, and some young adults, we also have programs on the weird and mysterious creatures allegedly roaming Wisconsin and the impact of prohibition on Marathon County, among other programs in the works.

So dig in! Check www.mcpl.us/slp throughout the summer for program schedules, updates and new programs not listed in our SLP calendar.
