Here is where people,

One frequently finds,

Lower their voices and

Raise their minds".

~~ Richard Armour, American poet and writer



This year, Marshall Public Library will offer its annual summer reading program through packets.  Even though this isn't our normal way, READING ISN'T CANCELLED!!!!!  This year's theme is "Imagine Your Story".  Summer reading program packets may be picked up Monday-Friday from 9:30-5:30. 


Inside each packet are activities, challenges, and other goodies that we hope will help you get through the summer.  Kids can earn beads and brag tags for their chain which is included in each packet.  For more information about SRP or any library service, call us at (903) 935-4465, email us at, or send us a message on the MPL's Facebook page.
