Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!
We will be open our regular hours during the holidays. This includes Saturday, December 23rd (open 9 am – 1 pm), and Saturday, December 30th (open 9 am – 1 pm). Our regular hours are posted on this page as well as on our library information page.
Please visit our ongoing book sale – Main Floor of the Library
We have tables with holiday books set-up on the main floor of the library near the front entrance. There are many fabulous books available.
The Friends of the Westminster Library are responsible for all our book sales. All funds from the book sale support the library. Money raised allows the library to provide professional performers, summer reading materials and prizes, and so much more.
Information on becoming a Friends member can be found on our Friends page.
The library is currently unable to accept book donations.
We encourage you to contact other public libraries to determine whether they are able to take your donations at this time. Thank you for supporting public libraries.
The Friends of the Westminster Library are recruiting new members to help organize book sales and other Friends’ events. You can find information about joining the Friends by clicking here; membership forms are available at the library.
