Marathon County Public Library

Skip Navigation ATTENTION: All MCPL locations will be closed Mon., 1/18.

Events: Grab & Go

To support social distancing during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the library is offering a variety of "Grab & Go" activity kits that may be picked up for completion at home.

These kits include most or all of the supplies needed to complete these projects and instructions (sometimes including a link to online video instructions). The target audience for each activity varies; there are activities for children, teens, adults and all ages. Some of these activities were planned as on-site library events before the pandemic and were adapted  to enable at-home participation, while others were planned more recently.

A complete list of upcoming Grab & Go activities may be viewed at

If you have any questions, please contact your local MCPL!
