Welcome to the Marengo Library Homepage
A lot of fun and learning go on in the Marengo Library, which is home to more than 17,000 great books. Children visit the library every week to hear age-appropriate stories, learn how to navigate the library, and borrow books.
What wonderful books will Marengo Lions find this year?
They'll Find Their Favorites!
The Big Theme in the library this year is "FIND YOUR FAVORITES!" Students will work on finding out what books really grab their attention and interest as well as how to actually find them in the library. Along the way, they'll learn about and hear some of their teachers' favorite childhood books as we feature them throughout the year.
Want to Help?
Please consider volunteering in the Marengo Library this year. Working in the library not only helps the library to run smoothly, it’s a great way to spend time with your child and his/her classmates in a happy, nurturing, and stimulating environment. When children see parents volunteering in the library it reinforces the importance of reading. Plus, it’s fun!
All library volunteers are required to attend a training session prior to working in the library. If you missed the sessions offered in September, please email me (Robin Becker, librarian) at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an individual training session for you. It will only take about 15 minutes.
Please use the following links to sign up to volunteer in the library.

It's a big election year!
Students will learn the importance of making their voices heard when they vote for their favorite CYRM books. Voting in the library is great practice for the future when they'll vote for representatives and laws that they support. The photos below were taken from last year's CYRM contest.
