The history of the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library is one marked
by the generosity and dedication of the Manitowish Waters community.
Frank & Betty Koller
In 1986, Frank and Betty Koller generously donated the library to the town of Manitowish Waters in memory of their son, Frank B. Koller. They again showed their support and generosity with the donation of a 760 square foot addition to the building in 1996, and continue to be wholehearted supporters of the library.
Pauline Zeber was the first librarian at the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library, working on a volunteer basis since the library's inception. Pauline contributed thousands of hours of her time managing the library, purchasing new materials, and cataloging the library's collection.
The Sullivan Room
The Sullivan Room was donated in 1988 by Robert Sullivan in memory of his father Willis G. Sullivan. Today, the Sullivan Room is used as meeting space by many community groups and activities.
