Community Connection

An active member of the West Carrollton Regional Readiness Coalition and the West Carrollton Merchants Association, the staff at the West Carrollton Branch is reaching out to children, teens, adults, and seniors in many ways. Through their multiple Take It & Read sites across the city to their participation in Family Fun Day and the West Carrollton Farmers Market, the Branch is an active member of the community. Whether collecting food donations for the West Carrollton Food Pantry or hosting the West Carrollton High School Art Club - the community knows there is always something happening in their Branch Library.


The expanded and renovated West Carrollton Branch opened on October 22, 2018. Enhancements include a cozy fireplace as well as two study rooms, a conference room, and a large meeting room.
