Community of Scandinavia, Wisconsin
The Scandinavia Public Library serves a village of 356 residents and citizens from the surrounding area.
The community of Scandinavia has a rich history and a number of older residents who remember it. It was a thriving hub of business and education in the 1800’s. During the 1900’s it declined significantly. In 1960 the local school district merged with neighboring Iola into a consolidated district. The elementary school remained active in Scandinavia until the 1980’s when it was removed. Now all school children in the village spend their school days in Iola except those few who are home-schooled.
