Welcome to Walworth Memorial Library

The Walworth Memorial Library was organized in 1939 in order to assemble an organized collection of books and related reading materials. From its small beginning, the Walworth Memorial Library has consistently grown. It has increased its collection in order to promote and provide stimulation, opportunity, and communication of ideas to its patrons, and to provide a vital learning center for citizens of all ages in the community. The library also serves the community as a central location for civic, cultural, and educational groups.

The Walworth Memorial Library will constantly strive to provide a friendly and competent staff, update the collection, and maintain availability of current technology to meet the needs of the community.

The Walworth Memorial Library serves as an educational and cultural resource for all children in the community. Special programs such as story hours and summer reading programs will be provided as enrichment experiences for all ages.

Mission Statement

The Walworth Memorial Library believes that it is a reflection of the importance of the community’s view of literacy and thus, has a commitment to provide access to quality library services for all patrons. The library recognizes that it plays a vital role as a source of informal continuing education for every age group. Therefore, its mission is to actively promote reading, learning, and literacy by uniting the community in its quest for lifelong learning.
