This building (1911) is an outstanding example of library design in "Prairie School" architecture by Claude and Starck. The library was established (1889) through a bequest from T.B. Scott, lumberman, legislator, and Merrill's first mayor, and was located in the City Hall until 1911. It was the first public library to conduct English classes for immigrants (1905) and one of the first "traveling libraries" (1898) in Wisconsin.
