Not sure what qualifies for a modern library. But you will find out that there are libraries for tcl for basically any purpose you might need. The most fameous one certainly is the tk library for creating GUIs. So doing a small gui might be a nice start, or any shell utility. The asynchroneus IO functions are great for creating small internet based servers and utilities. The most fundamental resource on tcl is probably the book by the creator, its worth a read: https://www.amazon.com/Tcl-Toolkit-2nd-John-Ousterhout/dp/03...

It not only covers the language and its usage but goes into depth of both extending tcl in C as well as embedding it into an application for scripting it.
