Book Group Survey

Our Fiction Book Club is restructuring and we need your help!
Please take the survey below to help us design a new book club, tailored to our patrons. Thank you.

Fiction Book Group Survey

 
We are now a Fine-Free Library

The Wells Public Library is happy to announce that overdue fines will no longer be charged. Items will still have a due date and should be renewed if you wish to keep them longer, but there will be no fine if you return it past its due date.

If an item is more than four weeks overdue, a replacement cost will be charged to the patron’s account. However, if the item is returned in good condition, that charge will be waived.

We hope that this will make the library an even more enjoyable experience for all!
Please reach out if you have any questions.
