Adult Craft Programs
Looking for something creative to do? Join us for “Pin It,” the craft program
for adults most Monday and Tuesday evenings in February. All “Pin It”
programs start at 6 p.m.
The “Pin It” program focuses on repurposing old, outdated books into cool
new things! Each week we’ll explore a new project that demonstrates different
crafts to help you express yourself! Learn how to make paperback wallets on
Monday, February 2, OR Tuesday, February 3. Make a folded book sculpture
on Monday, February 9, OR Tuesday, February 10. There will not be a craft
the week of February 16. Join us the last week of February for book page roses
on Monday, February 23.
No crafting experience necessary! This is a free program and all supplies are
provided. Work with other adults in a relaxed, fun atmosphere and learn to
make something new! Check out the library’s Facebook page for the complete
schedule and examples of the projects.

2015 Newspaper and Magazine Subscriptions
There are currently 193 newspaper and magazine subscriptions for all ages of
patrons at Marshall Public Library. Some magazines like Ladies Home
Journal, Jet, and Poder are no longer available because they have ceased
publication, but the library has added many new high interest subjects such as
Cat Fancy, Dog Fancy, Ski, Skiing, Quilting, Eating Well and Vegetarian Times.
Current magazine issues are kept in binders and do not check out. We keep the
previous year archived and on hand for patrons to view in-house or check out
and take home for two-week checkouts.
We also keep print issues of the Idaho State Journal on hand until the
microfilm versions have arrived. The microfilm versions of the Pocatello
newspaper dates back to 1895 when the Pocatello Tribune was the local paper.
A list of all newspapers carried by Marshall Public Library can be found on the
website by selecting the Magazines and Newspapers button from the Research
Tools drop down menu.
You can also access nearly 2000 full-text magazines and academic journals
through the Research Tools drop down menu by clicking on on the Resource
Centers and selecting MasterFILE Premier. If you have questions about the
library’s print and digital newspapers and magazines, please call the Reference
Desk at 232-1263 ext. 106. We are here to help you find the information you
