BENTON, KY – The beginning of Marshall County's Family Week this year kicked off with a tremendous start thanks to the families in our community who participated in separate events at each branch of the Marshall County Public Library System.
"The library staff did such an amazing job this year," said one patron who attended the event. "My daughter loved all of it."
The staff was thrilled with the community's response. Approximately 1,000 people attended events at the three branches and nearly 400 children went home with free books provided by the library system.
"Family Night has grown so large over the last few years that we held separate themed events at our branches so patrons could choose the one closest to them geographically," says Youth Services Manager, Tammy Blackwell.
Patrons were able to choose from a Star Wars themed event @Calvert City, a Family Fiesta party @Benton, and an Animals Scales & Tails show @Hardin. Each branch had snacks, games, crafts and door prizes. There was something for every member of the family to enjoy this year.
