Wellandport Public Library

The idea for the Wellandport Public Library was officially initiated with the Wellandport Women's Institute in September 1972, though according to some records it was discussed months earlier. A letter from the Women's Institute was sent to the West Lincoln Council asking it were possible for a library to be established in the village of Wellandport. The next step was a meeting involving the West Lincoln Public Library Board, community organizations and citizens of the town. Financial support came from local organizations such as the Women's Institute, Forresters, Pony Club and a Young People's Walkathon. In the spring of 1973, a branch library of the West Lincoln Public Library was opened in the village of Wellandport. Since 1973 the Wellandport Branch has grown in it's circulation and membership. It has changed locations with each step in it's growth.

Today, the Wellandport Public Library is part of the community centre in Wellandport. The library has hardcover and paperback books, magazines and pamphlets, Dutch language books, literacy material, VHS videocassettes, children's musical cassettes, children's books and cassettes. In addition to that there are computers available for public access to the Internet. We have a photocopy machine and printer which is networked to the computers. There is a charge for each printout or copy made.

Numerous children's programs take place at the library including a children's story time and a summer reading program.
