Learning Wins! The dreaded summer slide didn’t stand a chance this year at the Markesan Public Library. Readers smashed through the summer reading challenge with phenomenal numbers. We had 49 children signed up for the challenge with a total of 1,723 books logged and 40139 minutes read or 669 hours! Adults and teens likewise crushed our benchmarks. We had 31 adult and teens reading for a total of 55127 minutes or 919 hours of reading. A slew of great prizes including a $50 gift certificate to Ted’s Piggly Piggly and an electric “Razor” motor scooter were awarded and wonderful programs like the Water Balloon Olympics were held all because of the generosity of our sponsors. Please help us thank Chris' Floral, Delmonte, Milwaukee Public Museum, Pizza Hut, and Wishing Well of Green Lake County Fund for helping us keep learning fun and exciting this summer. A special thank you to our volunteer Kim Zills for sharing her crafting talents with the Firefly build and lending a hand at our children’s events.
