As part of the 2010 National Library Week (NLW) celebration, the Marathon County Public Library sponsored a "Why I Love My Library" event. Children throughout the county up through Grade 5 were invited to draw/color a picture showing why they loved their local library.
Hundreds of entries were received. It was very difficult to choose the top entries. Each entry was special; each one was from the heart. Over 30 entries were awarded prizes.
The winning entries were announced during Sunday's National Library Week Kick-off Celebration at the Headquarters Library.
Here are the winning entries for the Wausau Library:
The staff of the Marathon County Public Library would like to thank each and every boy and girl who took part in the Why I Love My Library event!
