Expansion Highlights

We aim to make our library as big and bright as the minds that come in! We're excited to showcase our expansion and even more excited to see our community grow with us.

Building the Library of the Future

The Frances Banta Waggoner Community Library
provides the residents of DeWitt and the surrounding
area free access to books, electronic technology and
other resources and services to meet their informational,
educational, and recreational needs and to stimulate
the process of, and appreciation of, life-long learning.
