Thank you Summer Readers & Sponsors!

Our hearts are filled with gratitude at the Markesan Public Library for all the wonderful sponsors of our Summer Learning Program and all the families that participated.  The statistics this year are staggering.  We had 79 children participate and 46 adults.  Children read a total of 1,026 hours!  Adults read 315 books!  We were able to give away 55 plus raffle prizes, weekly wheel prizes, and offer diverse programs that taught us lots about animals, conservation, dinosaurs, myths & legends, healthy eating, spicy foods, crafting, and so much more!  Families made memories and had fantastic opportunities for free spirited play.  But the library was only able to do this because of our kind sponsors.  Please help us thank :  Adam's Rib (in honor of Dennis & Jean Adam); Ballweg Implement Co., Inc.; Berlin Journal/Markesan Regional Reporter; Citgo of Markesan; Delmonte; Ergo Bank of Markesan; Green Lake Basic Needs Fund within the Green Lake County/Ripon Community Foundation (Grant); Horicon Bank of Markesan; Lions Club of Markesan; Pizza Hut; Two Sisters Piggly Wiggly of Markesan.  We also received a few personal donations too.  Thank you to those anonymous donors as well.

Library Pet Update

Our community’s generosity continued during the Penny Wars.  We raised a total of $502.40 completely from individuals!  We are planning to spend those funds on purchasing a pet for the library.  Voting ballots are out in the main lobby, and you can be included in a random drawing and have a chance to be the one to name our new library pet! Voting will finish at the end of August. We hope you'll stop by and cast your ballot!
