New Entrance to Children's

July 5, 2011

Follow the yellow brick road, but not to see the wizard, to enter the Children’s area @ MCPL Wausau.  The new “yellow brick road” leading to the Children’s area is only one part of the new entrance that has been generously funded by the Wausau Noon Optimists.  A colorful wall mural, featuring characters from children’s folktales, fairytales, an Aesop’s fable, and a nursery rhyme is the other piece.

Look for these six stories when you visit:

  • "Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon,..." nursery rhyme
  • Jack in the Beanstalk, folktale
  • Rapunzel, fairytale
  • The Three Little Pigs, fairytale
  • Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop’s Fable
  • Bremen Town Musicians, folktale

A short ribbon cutting ceremony, sponsored by the Wausau Noon Optimists and the Wausau Chamber of Commerce, celebrating the new entrance will be held on Monday, July 11 at 1:00pm.  Join us, and while you're here, take a skip down the yellow brick road, and enter a wonderful world of many stories and limitless opportunities to learn and grow.
