Bring your children to story time at your local Marathon County Public Library! Story times are intended to introduce children to literature and reading through storytelling, songs, games, puppets and fingerplays. Many of our story times meet on a weekly basis, while some are specially scheduled. See below for details.
Children Children of all ages are invited to use their imagination and creativity! These fun-filled, 60-90 minute programs feature a different story each week, followed by songs and supplemental activities. In partnership with the Family Resource Center.
Children Bring your entire family to story time! Children of all ages and parents/guardians are welcome to this 30-minute program. Enjoy learning with all of your children through stories, songs and other literature-based activities.
