When the summer heat is too oppressive for you to enjoy a day in the sun, escape the outdoors and let the AC of the Mary M. Campbell Marcus Hook Public Library keep you comfortable. The local library promises plenty of cozy nooks and crannies where you can beat the heat while you enjoy a good book.

It's open Monday through Thursday, including some evening hours, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Saturday, so you have ample opportunities to curl up with a fresh read. Of course, you can also just check out a book and take it with you to the beach or to your favorite park. The public library hosts some arts and crafts classes, as well, so get involved in your community by signing up for one.
