National Library Week is coming to an end. Marathon County Public Library has a year long promotion that you, the customer can help us achieve.
In 2008, customers checked out a total of 943,787 items at our nine locations. This was an increase of about 7% over 2007.
In 2009, we are marching to a million items checked out. Currently, we are up about 7% over 2008. With your help, an average monthly increase of 6% will help us reach our goal of one million items circulated to our customers.
The Library has many items for the entire family; books, DVDs, music CDs, video games, books on CD, playaways, book discussion kits, VHS tapes, magazines, artwork, and much more and most important they are all free for you to check out.
Help us reach our goal of 1,000,000 items checked out in 2009 by bringing an extra item home every time you come to the Library. Please remember to tell your friends about all the great materials that the Library has to offer!
Please visit one or our nine locations; Athens, Edgar, Hatley, Marathon City, Mosinee, Rothschild, Spencer, Stratford, and Wausau to take advantage of the wonderful library resources that are available.
