Marquette, MI – September 12, 2015 – Though we have reached the midpoint of the week, the Peter White Public Library is still pumping out plenty of entertainment through Friday. The 8th Day host Todd Paz talked to returning visitor, Margret Boyle about the weekly schedule.

If you are looking for something to do during the weekday, Peter White still has some good options to come. Thursday, September 17, 2015 the library is hosting a Genealogy Beginner Workshop.
