Library Aquarium Boosts Marine-Life Interest Submitted: 02/18/2013
Wausau - You can check out more than just books at the Marathon County Public Library. Phyllis Donner donated an aquarium to the library for some extra scenery.

The aquarium is perfect for teaching students of all ages about marine life. Library Assistant Abby Beyerl says the new addition has been an educational experience.

"We've definitely seen an increase in people checking out marine life books. Even audio, magazines, everything related to that. Because they come in and are like I want books about this' and they're all over it." The aquarium costs about 4-thousand dollars a year to run.
