This summer we will be offering some favorites and some new options for all ages. Our theme is “Libraries Rock” and we will start off with a “Summer Blast Off” Party where you can register and have some fun (hopefully the weather will cooperate). We will even have an option for kids attending the Marinette City Supervised Playgrounds.  Check the  event listings in the newspaper and on Facebook throughout the summer for themes and details.

All programs/events are free and open to the public.

 

 

 



Marinette: Story Times

PRESCHOOL and ITSY BITSY STORY TIMES:

Join us on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. for Preschool Story Time, ages 3-6; or on Wednesday mornings at 11:00 a.m. for Itsy Bitsy Story Time, ages birth to 3. Siblings are welcome at both story times

Preschool Story Time offers an opportunity for your child to interact with others at their own level and for parents/caregivers to connect with others. This chance to socialize is paired with fun experiences with stories, songs, rhymes, and activities that are the building blocks of early literacy.

Itsy Bitsy Story Time focuses on offering children and their parent or caregiver a chance to experience songs, movement, and short stories together. Play time at the end offers everyone a chance to socialize and visit. The familiar pattern of story time helps children feel comfortable in this new environment.

If you have any question about attending a story time, please contact the library
