Participants in the 2016 Summer Reading Program at the Marshall Public Library are invited to step up to the starting line. Wednesday, June 1 at 5 p.m. the program will kick off with a community fun run/walk at the Library, 113 South Garfield Avenue, and the 2.5 mile route will take participants along the Portneuf Greenway Trail just past Centennial Park and back. "The theme for our children and adults is 'On Your Mark, Get Set… READ,' while our teen theme is 'Get in the Game: The Amazing Reading Race,'” said Kath Ann Hendricks, Young Adult Librarian. "It's only fitting that we get things started with a friendly race." Participants are being asked to pick up a reading log to track their progress over the summer months and teens will be earning stamps for their reading passports. Over the course of the summer, the library will also be hosting a number of activities with a nod to the Olympics including arts and crafts on Mondays, movies on Tuesdays and Thursdays and foods from around the world and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities on Fridays. "There will be plenty to engage readers of all ages," Hendricks said. "Whether you just want to get through a few good books or be a little more hands-on, we've got something for you." The Summer Reading Program runs until August 12.
