Building Project

The Public Library Board and Staff would like to announce that we are currently trying to raise community awareness and support for a new library building for our community. We would like your thoughts, assistance, and input on this project. We have successfully completed one fundraiser, The Holiday Event. We are currently selling Cardinal bracelets at the library and various activities. This project is going to take the entire community to accomplish. Some ideas to include have been a meeting room, a teen area, and a small scale coffee shop. Please share your thoughts and ideas with us as we want everyone to benefit from this project.
Donations can be made at the Wetmore National Bank to the Wetmore Public Library Building Fund
