Summer Reading Program

Participate in our Summer Reading Program to stay sharp and beat “summer slide"!

This year, our theme is “Tales and Tails" and runs from June 7th to July 31st. We will be using the new 'Beanstack' app again to help you keep track of your reading and prize tickets digitally.

Click on the picture above, or download the Beanstack app from the  iTunes Store or the Google Play Store.


Sign up right in the Beanstack app and start logging your reading to win prizes! If you are unable to use the app, you can sign up at the library and pick up a paper reading log.


Open to Marshall Library users of all ages!





Petting Zoo--June 6th, 3-5pm                                                                            

Check out the local farm animals up close.  FFA members will bring their animals for you to enjoy. Free and family friendly. All ages welcome!

"Wildlife Tails & Tales"--June 22nd 6-7 pm
Why does a Beaver have a flat tail? Why do water turtles like a long tail? David Stokes will use humor, puppets and live creatures to help us learn more about wildlife and their tails.  Join us for an evening of great family entertainment.

Story Walk--June 29th 4-6 pm
Enjoy an outdoor story walk as you read "Handa's Surprise". Handa carries some fruits to her friend as a surprise. But thanks to some animals along the way, it's Handa who is in for a surprise.

Scavenger Hunt --July 5-10

Three Little Pigs House Building  July 5-10

Test your building skills against the big bad wolf. Building materials are provided in the maker space area.  Open any time the library is open this week.


1) You must have a valid library card to participate. Need a library card? They’re free! Kids: Bring a parent. Adults: bring in a WI photo ID & proof of current address (something you got in the mail within the last 3 months).

2) All books or materials used must be checked out from Marshall Library.

3) You must claim prizes by August 31st.

4) Push yourself. You should read books that are at or above your skill level.

5) If you are participating in more than one library’s summer reading program, please don’t “double dip.” (For example, don’t read 1 book for 20 minutes and then use that to get an incentive from another library AND from us.)

6) Parents are responsible for children at all events.
