Local High School Yearbooks Needed!

February 6, 2019

Are you a local high school graduate who wouldn't mind parting with your high school yearbook? Or are you helping a family member de-clutter and have some yearbooks to get rid of? The Marathon County Public Library might want them!

MCPL’s Wausau Headquarters houses a large collection of local high school yearbooks, including the Wausau East (formerly Wausau High School) Wahiscan, Wausau West Aurora, Newman High School Cardinal (formerly The Red Hat), the D.C. Everest Everette, and Faith Christian Academy annual. In addition, our Marathon City Branch has a limited collection of the Marathon High School Fleetfoot, and our Mosinee Branch also recently acquired a small collection of the Mosinee High School Chief. Though these annuals are not available for checkout, patrons can look through them within the library and make copies. Many people enjoy looking at them for genealogical purposes, when working on projects about local history or simply to reminisce. The vast majority of these yearbooks were provided to us through donations, and we need your help completing our collection!

The following years for each yearbook are needed to fill in the gaps in our collection:
