Marinette County Libraries: Collecting Valentines for Veterans

Show your appreciation for the service of our Veterans by making Valentine’s Day cards and dropping them off at your local Marinette County public library by February 5, 2018. The cards will be sent to the VA Hospital in Iron Mountain and given to local Veterans in time for Valentine’s Day. Please help us show our Veterans that we are grateful for their sacrifices and remember their service to our country.


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
