Library Collections

We have built a well balanced collection of print and audio-visual materials for children and adults that includes downloadable audio books, and large print books. Our online resources provide access for researching the family tree, finding homework help, and links for job seekers. We also offer innovative educational and cultural programs for everyone. Daily story times, monthly concerts and movies, and Summer Reading Programs are a few of the wonderful activities that the library offers. WPL plays a major role in educating our citizens and improving the quality of life; let our dedicated team provide you quality professional library services with a smile!
