Our Facilities

Wellington County Library has 14 branches to serve you. We are fortunate to have five Carnegie buildings that have been renovated to be accessible to everyone while still maintaining their heritage and charm. Our new buildings are modern facilities that are sure to impress.

Many of our branches offer meeting room space that you can rent by the hour, half-day, or full day. For a complete listing of locations, as well as rates and features, click here.

All Wellington County Library facilities are compliant with Wellington County's accessibility standards. If you need library materials or information in a specific format, our staff will endeavour to supply these where available, or connect you with services that can assist.

Carnegie Libraries

Small public libraries, BIG community impact!

Join Wellington County in celebrating Carnegie libraries and their continuing impact on small town Ontario.

These libraries are revered by citizens and have enjoyed the patronage of generations since Andrew Carnegie's initial investment in the early 1900s. The distinctive buildings, and the friendly staff within, stand as a beacon of community engagement.

Wellington County is fortunate to have five Carnegie library branches in the system. They are the Elora Branch, Harriston Branch, Fergus Branch, Mount Forest Branch and the Palmerston Branch.
