Lisa, local professional

I grew up in WDM and visited the "old" library on Grand Avenue every Saturday.  I still remember the help and encouragement I received from the staff members, who undoubtedly understood the value of my insatiable appetite for books! Today, at 50, I've had a successful writing and editing career for years... I credit that little building on Grand and its warm, wonderful staff with giving a young girl in the 1970s the tools to create a future with the written word. 

 

HotSpots

The Library has Wireless Internet Hotspots for checkout!

These hotspots are available for checkout by patrons who:

  • Are WDM Residents
  • Are 18 years of age and older
  • Have WDM Library cards in good standing

These Hotspots can be checked out for one (1) week.  They offer high-speed wireless internet anywhere for your Wi-Fi-capable devices.  They can be put on hold.

To check one out, come up to the 2nd Floor Reference Desk.  Bring with you:

  • WDM Library card, and
  • A government-issued ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.)

Hotspots do not check out within 30 minutes of closing, to allow us to finish the checkout process.
