Grand Opening Children's Learning Center/Story Room
Recently the MCPL mission changed and our spaces are changing too.  A new children’s Learning Center is debuting this Saturday @ MCPL Wausau

Join us at 10:30, Saturday, December 17 @ the Wausau location as we celebrate the Grand Opening of the new Children’s Learning Center/Story Room.  Perhaps you too will be transported to the seaside while looking at the wall art by our very own Kitty and Deb.
