“The mission of the Memorial and Libary Association is to strengthen the community and enrich lives by stimulating the intellect and sparking imagination through access to literature, information, nature, and the arts.”

And 126 years later our library is still striving to provide our community access to all the information the world has to offer. Gone are the days of libraries strictly dealing with words and ideas on paper medium. The Westerly library has and will continue to evolve to expand its offerings to stay in step with the times. The library now offers 183,000 bound items as well as access to video, music, and computers. Westerly is also a member of Ocean State Libraries, a statewide program that allows library cardholders access to request items from all other participating libraries and have these items delivered to Westerly! This expands cardholder’s access to millions of items statewide! In addition to this program, the library also has several computers stations available for the public that access numerous online databases. So you see, the library really is your window to the world!IMG_3400]]>
