A New Vision for a Historic Location
Avery and Lori Schott are the owners of the Old Library Mercantile. The Schott’s rural roots run deep – Avery was raised right here in eastern Colorado, where his family farmed, and Lori was raised in southwest Iowa on a registered Angus operation. The Schotts raised their children – Cameron, Caleb, and Annalee – on the family farm and were active in 4-H, FFA, and the rodeo. When the opportunity arose to purchase the Old Library, Avery encouraged Lori to look at this beautiful building and it was literally love at first sight. Thus starts the next chapter for the Old Library.
