Marathon Library Referendum Passes by a Huge Margin

Link to November 4 Wausau Daily Herald article, "Marathon voters OK new library".

Excerpt: Voters in Marathon on Tuesday approved building a $550,000 public library by an overwhelming margin of 86 percent to 14 percent.

Only 56 voters opposed the new library, compared with 333 who voted in favor of the project. There are 1,034 registered voters in the village.

Village residents will pay for half of the library to be built next spring near the corner of Fourth and Washington streets on land donated by the Marathon Area Swim Association. The Marathon County Library System will fund the other half.
