Library closed until further notice

T.B. Scott Free Library has closed until further notice, effective immediately.

Based on the latest information and updates from state and local officials about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have made the decision that closing our building is in the best interest of public safety at this time.

Library administration will work with Merrill officials and the Library Board of Trustees to reassess the situation and determine when it is best to reopen.

At this time we are encouraging our patrons to use our website,, and the tools and resources available there, including eBooks and eAudiobooks, streaming video, digital learning tools, and more.

Some core functions of the library will continue. This is a changing, fluid situation, and we will continue to share the latest T.B. Scott Free Library updates on our social media channels and on this page. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please continue to be safe.

Also, the Library offers a large collection of digital materials, including eBooks and eAudiobooks, which can be accessed at any time online through the Wisconsin Digital Library.

If anything else changes in the future with regards to our library and the services we provide, we will communicate that to our patrons immediately. Thank you.

More information on COVID-19 is available on the CDC website at

Room reservations have been discontinued until we re-open.
