Celebrate Wausau: The History of the Public Library

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

As Wausau celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2022, members of the public can join the Marathon County Public Library (MCPL) for a virtual look back at the history of the Wausau library!
Though it has gone by other names over the years, our local library has been a vital part of the Wausau community since the late 1800s and has been anchored in the same location in downtown Wausau since the early 1900s! We’ll share the origins of the Wausau Public Library and the Marathon County Library, and how the two merged together in the 1970s to form the Marathon County Public Library. Attendees will also hear the history of the downtown Wausau Headquarters building, and learn about some of the folks who worked there over the years.
The evening will also feature a poetry reading by Wausau Poet Laureate (and former MCPL employee) Dawn Anderson, who will share some new and unique poems created just for the occasion!
Free and open to the public. For more information, call 715-261-7230 or visit
