Marvin Memorial Library is celebrating National Library Week as shown in this April 6 photo.

Marvin Memorial is celebrating National Library Week with a wide range of events for those of all ages to enjoy, both in person and virtually.

National Library Week is taking place April 4-10 and Marvin Memorial has a jam packed scheduled.

Throughout the week, patrons who choose to come into the library can join staff members for their themed dress up days. The themes for each day of the week include: Monday: Pajamas and Stuffed Animals; Tuesday: Wacky Hat Day; Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday; Thursday: Holiday Day; Friday: Spirit Day; Saturday: Flannel Day.

Shelly Krystofik, adult programming coordinator at MML, explained patrons can join staff members in dressing up but don’t have to if they don’t want.

On Tuesday, April 6 Michael Mage will be at the amphitheater in Shelby to host a magic show. Mage will begin at 6 p.m. and those who plan to attend are asked to bring their own lawn chairs.

Krsytofik explained this would be the third time Mage has performed for Marvin Memorial.

Also, Krystofik revealed Marvin Memorial was doing something they have never done before called ‘Twisted Tuesday’.

“We have talked about doing this for a very long time and we decided to give it a try this year. There will be little things around the library that patrons will have to notice. There will be about 20 things that will be ‘twisted’. For those who are able to find all the twisted items they will be put in a drawing to win a prize,” Krystofik said.

In addition, some regularly scheduled favorites will also be taking place through the celebratory week.

On Monday, April 5, Marvin Memorial planned to post their April Coffee With a … Patron video. On Wednesday, Krystofik will hold the Cookbook Club virtually and Story Time and Family Night videos will be posted throughout the week. All of these events are virtual and can be accessed through Marvin Memorial’s website at or through their Facebook page.

On Monday, April 5, Mayor Steven Schag was scheduled to present a proclamation acknowledging National Library Week at the regular city council meeting.
