WPL Mission Statement
 
"The mission of Wyomissing Public Library is to provide a wide variety of popular and informational material for reading, listening, and viewing. The library places an emphasis on those services which encourage children and parents to read together, as well as providing educational, cultural and general programs for the community at large. Electronic as well as print reference information is available."
 
Our library is always bustling with programs for infants through adulthood.  Children's programs require many supplies. 
 
A wonderful way to say "thank you" for library services to our community, is to donate items from our Amazon Wish List.  Click the link below for details.  Thank you in advance!

 
 
We're Collecting...
 
We are always reusing and recycling.  It's good for our library, the economy and the environment! 
 
We're collecting empty 2 liter bottles and baby wipe containers. A collection box is located at the main library entrance.  
 
Thanks! 

 

Library Renovations Update
 
It's been quite busy at 9 Reading Boulevard these past few weeks! Many thanks to our patrons who've been so patient during renovations.

While these pictures are lovely, we highly recommend visiting for an up close experience of the improved changes.

Word on the Boulevard
 
"I spent hours in the library studying, reading or just goofing off as a child, stretching from 4th grade through high school. I still visit the library whenever I'm in town, and I've researched and written two TIME magazine stories on two different subjects while hunkered down at one of the tables in the main reading room. Indeed, the WPL is still one of my very favorite places. Happy birthday!"
