We are proud to announce for the 3rd year that Marion City Library has received a 4-Star Rating from the Library Journal!
The rating is figured on circulation, library visits, number of programs, attendance and internet use based on library budget and population. Ratings are given on a 3-5 star rating, with 5 being the highest.
There were only 12 libraries in the state of Kansas who received any rating.
We are very proud and grateful for the award and want to thank everyone for helping us reach this goal by giving us your support, interest and cooperation in our endeavors to enrich our community.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
This program is an ongoing early literacy program to get children ready to start reading. Studies have proven that young children who have been read to regularly build the skills they need in order to learn to read. If anyone reads to your child just 1 library book a day for a year, they will have listened to 365 books!
After the children have registered at the library, they will receive a reading chart to record their books. When they complete their first 100 books they will receive a book bag and their next reading chart. The children will receive a prize for every 100 books read till they reach 1000. At 500 books, the child will have a library book dedicated to them that will remain in the library and be a reminder to your family and all the families in our community about the importance of early literacy!
Let’s see what we can accomplish together to benefit our children.
Come join this lively group the last Wednesday of every month from 4-5 pm. Discuss what you’ve been reading or sit back and listen to what they’ve been reading!
If you would like to receive emails from the library containing information about upcoming library events, new books, movies, etc., please supply the staff with your email address. Your email address will not be shared with anyone else.
