National Library Week Historical Slideshow

April 14, 2016

The Marathon County Public Library is celebrating National Library Week in a multitude of ways, including reflecting on the past, present and future!

To go along with this year's NLW theme of "Libraries Transform," MCPL has put together a historical slideshow featuring images and information highlighting the many ways MCPL transformed, from starting as a small men's literary club in the mid-to-late 1800s to becoming a modern-day entity that serves the largest county in Wisconsin (by area) with nine locations.

Watch MCPL's evolution below, and catch a glimpse of what the future may have in store!
