The Williams County Public Library is proud to announce a major policy change. Because of your past support of our levies, the library board has voted unanimously to remove all overdue fines, effective immediately. In addition, we have cleared all prior late fines from patron accounts. From this point moving forward, no late fines will be charged on overdue materials at any Williams County Public Library, with locations in Bryan, Edgerton, Edon, Pioneer, Stryker, and West Unity.
The Williams County Public Library is happy to announce a new, more streamlined system, for curbside hold pickup. The library will now use the Click and Collect feature, available through the SEO Libraries App, for curbside hold pickups. Click & Collect is a safe and convenient way for patrons to pick up “on-hold” items from WCPL, without having to book a curbside appointment in advance, and can be used for during open hours at any WCPL location.
The Williams County Public Library is excited to now offer 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten at all locations in Bryan, Edgerton, Edon, Pioneer, Stryker, and West Unity! The FREE reading program helps to build early literacy skills before your child enters Kindergarten. To take part in 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten simply visit your local WCPL branch, and sign up for the program at the library desk. You will be given a reading log to keep track of your child’s progress, and prizes will be rewarded for reading milestones!
