Marathon Library Celebrates 55 Years

Friday, March 24, 2017

The Marathon Library just turned 55, and the staff would like to celebrate the branch’s success and kick off a new era by inviting the community to a party. In 1962, the Marathon Branch started from humble beginnings in a small room at the rear of San Pablo Catholic Church. Now, in 2017, county officials are planning the design of a sophisticated two-floor facility and cultural center. At the gathering, locals can speak to staff members about the new building, see displays of historical photos of the library, enjoy light refreshments, and take in a performance by Marathon's own John Bartus on the outdoor stage in the garden. The event starts at 6:30 p.m.; the music starts at 7 p.m.
