Friends of the Library

Mission Statement

The Friends of the T. B. Scott Library organization is a volunteer organization established to support the Merrill public library in developing its facilities and services for the community, to encourage gifts and bequests to the library, and to stimulate support and use of the library. We promote knowledge of the function, services, resources and needs of the library – all the while enjoying the fellowship of the Library Friends.


Please print out the Membership Brochure from home, or visit the library for an application.


Monthly in the Board Room. Open to the public. See the Library Events Calendar for exact dates.
