About the Library

 Many small branches have come and gone over the years as populations have shifted. The Scott bar branch has been here continuously since the early 1920s, when the postal clerk was paid a $3 monthly stipend for her library work. In the early days communication with the main library was all by hand written notes along the lines of, “Send us another box of books please! The ones we have have all been read by everyone”. The books were sent by mail. Many patrons request books online or at the branch and have them delivered to Scott Bar. Residents of nearby Hamburg and Horse Creek also use the branch to avoid a trip to town. Rumblings of closing the post office or library have always been met with strong opposition, so we hope the little library will remain in service for many years to come!
