About the Library

The Westmoreland Public Library was started in 1987 and was then located in the lower end of the V.F.W. building.  It was first staffed by volunteers.  Ms. Willie Ruth Borders became the library's director in October, 1987. 

Through a group of people that later became known as the "Friends of the Library", money was raised to build Westmoreland's current library.   The doors to this new library opened in July, 1991.

The library has grown since those days, and today it  is in the process of adding a children's room.

 

Computers/Internet

The library has five computers available to the public for Internet access.  It also has free wireless Internet access.

 

For The Children

The library offers many books and other materials of interest to children of all ages.We have Storytime
each Tuesday at 11 a.m. for preschoolers.  Please call the library for additional information.

 

Friends of the Library

Anyone is welcome to join the Friends of the Library.  This is a very important group of individuals who devote a lot of time and energy to help raise funds for new acquisitions and operating expenses for the Westmoreland library.  Please call the library for the next scheduled meeting of the Friends of the Library.

This is an interesting web site for students and teachers.  The website provides study materials for selected literature, poetry, and U.S. history topics.   Below is part of a press release Shmoop sent out:

"We're Shmoop, a new educational website for high school and college students. A bunch of us (mostly Ph.D. and Masters students from Stanford and Berkeley) have worked on this for the past year-and-change. We opened our doors recently, and we're itching to ask you for your 2 cents, shekels, whatever.
