Brainerd Public Library presents, Professor Marvel's World of Wonders

-Thursday, July 14 at 3:00pm

ONE WORLD ... SO MANY STORIES! People say that there are only seven wonders of the world. Professor Marvel has set out to prove them wrong.

Each time a book is opened regular readers have the opportunity to explore amazing worlds, meet outrageous characters, and learn how to do the most extraordinary things.  In short, every book is in and of itself a world of wonders.

The Brainerd Public Library gives a huge thanks to our local businesses that supported the library's Summer Reading Program.  We couldn't offer this free program without your help.  Your donations of coupons, prizes and pizza were a great way to reward the kids for reading.  To see the look on a child's face when they earned a prize for reading was so much fun.  Your incentives kept them excited about reading throughout the summer.  We had a record setting year, with over 960 children signing up to read!  A big thank you to Applebees, Buffalo Wild Wings, Culver
