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.
