Looking for information from the past? 
The library is a great place to start!

The Marchant Memorial Library has the following resources that might be able to help in your search:

  • Scranton School yearbooks
  • Scranton cemetary information
  • Local historical maps, journals, and other resources

Some Scranton resources and some Iowa resources are in-library use only.


Projects that we are working on: the Greene County Librarians Association is working towards the goal of digitalizing the county's newspapers. The Jefferson Herald published an article about this process in the Thursday, February 27th, newspaper. This will allow patrons from around the world to be able to access the past issues of the Greene County newspapers. Research for genealogy or just for curiosity will be available at our fingertips as long as we have an internet connection!

Check back here for more news and information about the project as it becomes available.
