A Merrill library that is more than 100-years-old is getting a pat on the back for continuing to provide needed programs and services.
The T.B. Scott Free Library has won the distinction of Wisconsin's library of the year. This is the second time the library has won the award. The first time was 25 years ago. Since then, the library has doubled in size.
"This allows us, first of all, to have handicapped accessibility so that everyone in the community can come to the library." Beatrice Lebal, the libraries director said of the new additions.
Lebal has worked at the library 14 years.
The library has also added an online library catalog. This allows people to access resources from 17 other libraries in Northcentral Wisconsin.
