The Wood Memorial Library served as one of two public libraries for the town of South Windsor when it opened in 1928.    In the early 1970's the town closed the two libraries and opened one larger facility on Sullivan Avenue. In 1971 a grass roots effort to keep the Wood Memorial Library open culminated with the incorporation of the Friends of Wood Memorial Library. As a privately funded public library the Wood continues to provide exceptional programming and collection access to the community.

Today the Library operates with a part-time staff of three and over 120 volunteers. The "Friends" make it possible to offer a full calendar of events and programs such as the:

Young Artist Series
American Girl Teas
Craft Show
Quilt Show
Story Hour
Annual Golf Scramble
Ann Masi Memorial Children's Program
Family Fun Day Events
Art Exhibitions
School Field Trips


"Friends" also support the Library with financial contributions to the annual Fund at a variety of levels.

Please join us as a Friend of Wood Memorial Library. Your time, expertise or financial support will be welcome as we continue to fulfill our mission:

"to provide literary, historical, educational and cultural resources
  for the general public".
