Frequently Asked Questions

Will we be able to play in the castle and Children’s Place?

  • Families are welcome to visit the library to browse the book stacks to find books to check out.
  • The usual practice of the children’s area serving as a play and activity space is not possible at this time.
    • The castle is too small to allow for safe distancing, so the castle will remain closed.
    • All toys have been removed, and Children’s Place play areas are closed.

May I reserve a meeting room or the Carter House?

At this time, only the Carter House is available to rent for public use. The library meeting rooms are currently unavailable at this time. For more information on Carter House rental, visit https://wcdpl.org/content/carter-house.

Are you accepting book donations?

Unfortunately, WCDPL is unable to accept any donations of books, DVDs, CDs, or other physical materials due to lack of storage space.
