Summer Reading Program

Our next Summer Reading Program will begin in June of 2018.
The theme will be "Libraries Rock!"

Our Summer Reading Program offers learners of all ages a variety of ways to stay sharp and beat “summer slide.” For 2018, our theme is “Libraries Rock!”
Marshall library patrons of all ages can sign up to earn prizes by completing a series of challenges, including reading. There is no charge for this program. Each time you read a book or complete an activity, you’ll get to pick something special from our closet, stocked with a wide range of fun prizes for all ages, including toddlers and adults.

You can sign up for the Summer Reading Program starting June 1st.
Sign up by coming into the library. You'll recieve your Challenge Sheet and other materials.

Summer Reading Program Rules
1) You must have a valid library card to participate.
2) All books that you read, or materials you check out, must be checked out from Marshall Library.

3) You can’t complete a challenge more than once (unless it’s listed on your Challenge Sheet more than once).
4) You must claim any earned prize before July 28th.
5) Push yourself. You should read books that are at or above your skill level.
6) If you are participating in more than one library’s summer reading program, please don’t “double dip.” (For example, don’t read 30 minutes and then use that to get an incentive from Sun Prairie AND from us.)
7) Parents are responsible for children at all events.
