The Williamsville Public Library and Museum strives to enhance the lives of the people who live in or visit our community. We aim to promote lifelong learning; to collect, preserve and exhibit materials pertaining to the Village’s history; and to encourage a love of reading.
Come and visit us at our new location, our staff and volunteers will be happy to help you anytime at the service desk or over the phone.
WPLM is committed to being an integral part of the Village of Williamsville; providing an asset to our community and contributing to local historic preservation.
February is Art & Design Month
Pixel art and a building challenge are a couple of the different activities for you to enjoy any time you drop in this month. A special display of art is on loan from WJHS students in February. Check out an art-inspired book or DVD on this month's featured book display.

Paws to Read
Stop by from 6:00pm- 6:30pm on Monday, February 26, and Monday, March 12, to read to Murphy, a certified therapy dog. Reluctant readers often prefer to read to someone who will not judge them.
