Summer Library Program (SLP)

Join us for an adventure this summer at your local library! We are celebrating the “Adventure Begins At Your Library” theme through our book displays, activity book, BINGO reading cards, summer performances, county wide programs, and park story times! Our summer programming has something for all ages but is especially geared towards school-age children and tweens/teens.

Visit your library beginning June 1 to pick up an activity book! Inside you’ll find a complete county wide listing of our summer programs and performances. The activity book also includes multiple puzzles, a coloring page, and our summer reading program BINGO cards for early and school-aged readers. Complete the prompts on your BINGO card and you can earn up to two free books! We’ll also have BINGO cards available for young adults!

Be sure to include some of our summer performance dates and locations on your family calendar! We are pleased to welcome Tom Pease back to Marathon County in June! Tom will sing songs, make you laugh, and more during his concert. There’s a reason we keep bringing Tom back to perform in our area: He’s a great entertainer! Or if animals are your thing, check out Zoozort, Snake Discovery, or Animal Acrobats!

We also have exciting programs for teens! Anyone going into grades 6–12 are welcome to attend our summer teen events. In Wausau, we’ll get colorful making tie-dye tote bags in June, get competitive in the Amazing Race in July, and get creative making DIY neon lights in August. The fun doesn’t stop there! Teens can also visit the library every Tuesday during the summer for Dungeons & Dragons adventures. For teens interested in forensic science and detective work, we have a NEW program just for you! Teen Forensics 101, put on in collaboration with Marathon County 4-H, will be happening throughout the summer in Wausau on the fourth Thursday of the month. Join us as we do hands-on experiments and discuss intriguing mystery-related media!

 Summers are meant to be celebrated and filled with memories. Families can plan to make some when they visit their local library!
