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.

Area daycare providers may schedule a morning or afternoon story time at MCPL Wausau on Thursdays, September –May. Call 715-261-7220 or use our Group Visit Form to add your group to the schedule.
