Fizz, Boom, Read this summer at all Marathon County Public Libraries and join us as we have programs that will entertain and educate all ages.

There is a listing of all programs that are occurring this summer at all Marathon County Public Libraries at www.mcpl.us/slp. Checkout this website and plan your summer to attend these programs as they are open to the public. Call ahead if you have questions, 715-261-7200.

Get in the Hearing Loop! Stratford and Spencer Branch Libraries have had the Hearing Loop technology installed at their branches. This is for people with hearing loss, and this will improve hearing access for hearing aid users where background noise or distance make it difficult to hear.

This program is being coordinated by Wisconsin Valley Library Service, a regional library system, with Library Services and Technology Act funds awarded to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Spencer Branch

June 18 at 10 a.m., Nature's Niche will have a hands-on experience of creatures that are not native to our area. Come and see what he will bring and what these creatures contribute to science.

Tom Pease will give all "a big musical hug" at 10 a.m. July 8. He is a regionally renowned musician, storyteller and humorist. The show is open to the public, and all ages are invited.

We will have crafts, coloring pages and puzzles at the library to keep you busy this summer.

Phone 715-659-3996 for more information.
