Can I return WMCL books to any other library?

Yes! You can return WMCL books to the following libraries:

  • Moody Community Library
  • West Public Library and Museum

You can return books from these libraries at any WMCL branch, too. (If you have fines or need to renew, you have to take care of that at the community library, though.) Click here for more information.

Is the Library closed on Christmas Day? (or Thanksgiving, or Veterans Day)

We are closed for most city holidays. For a complete list of our holiday closures, click here. Check out the 2018 Holiday schedule here.

What about the training Fridays?

We open at noon on the first Friday of each month to give our staff some learning time. This helps us make the Library even more awesome for you! We are always working to serve you better!
