Call MCPL for a Stack of Hand-Picked Books

Are you or your child running out of fun and engaging titles to read during the COVID-19 pandemic? Then call any of the nine Marathon County Public Library locations and we will hand-pick titles for you and your children!

Need new read-alouds before bed for your baby or preschooler? We would love to prepare a stack of our story time favorites and new books for you by request via curbside pick-up! Have a tween that loves fantasy, or the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and they've run out of books? We have a bunch of new titles we can pull and have ready for your child! Or maybe you need a good mystery or thriller for yourself? The great thing about the library is, books are free to check-out, so if you or your child doesn’t like what we pick out, you simply just return it!

Part of our job at the library is to be experts on literature and to be well-versed in all that is offered. It is one of the best parts of the job as a children’s librarian, in my opinion, to recommend titles to young readers and parents. We are here to give reading advice and recommend great titles to you and your kids, so just call and tell us what you or your child enjoys and we will be more than happy to find books that suit you, your interests and reading level.

Some MCPL locations also have pre-made book bundles of picture books (and few preschool-age nonfiction bundles) ready for you to check out via curbside pickup. These bundles contain a stack of books centered around different themes including dinosaurs, things that go (trucks, trains, etc.), gardens, princesses, Paw Patrol, unicorns, construction, pets, etc. If your preferred location doesn't, no worries - they'll be happy to handpick a stack of books based on your request. 

For more questions, requests or more information, call your local MCPL location.
