Dream Big--Read!

May 16, 2012

Dreams and wishes and sleepy-time kisses!  It’s Dream Big-Read, the Summer Library Program @ your MCPL library.  We have so much fun planned this summer for kids, teens and families that you just have to stop in, grab some good reading and go to a program or two.

Visiting a Marathon County library near you this summer are musicians/songwriters Tom Pease and Rich Baumann, juggler Bob Kann, the Raptor Education Group with large raptor birds, magician Professor Marvel a.k.a. Rob Halbrook,  and more.  You can also join us for a pool party at Memorial Park, meet us at the ballpark for a Woodchucks game, read to (and pet) therapy dogs, do some dreamy crafts, and bring the family (in your “jammies” if you wish) for a Sweet Dreams storytime on Monday nights 6:30pm @ MCPL Wausau (begins June 4).
     
If you are a teen (completed grades 6-12), we also have a special reading club and programs just for you--a scavenger hunt, art party, tie dye t-shirts, martial arts demonstration, mad science night, improv comedy and more are planned Tuesday nights at 6:00pm @MCPL Wausau.   

And don’t forget to read this summer and submit reading tickets @ your local MCPL. Teens earn rewards by submitting reading tickets online or writing book reviews.  Monthly drawings for prizes will be held. 

The Summer Library Program begins on June 3.  A complete list of Summer programs is online.
