Merry the Christmas Fairy returns to Marshall County this December! Santa’s librarian has been visiting the children of Marshall County to spread the magic of books since 2015. This year, the Merry the Christmas Fairy book project resumes for the first time since 2019. The project gives 5th graders the opportunity to illustrate a Merry story that will be printed and distributed to every kindergartener in the Marshall County Public Schools. Merry will be making appearances during the first two weeks of December. Student illustrators will be signing free copies of Bright's Big Idea on Saturday, December 9, at 1:00 p.m. at the Benton branch.
