Wadsworth Library Long Range Plan

Wadsworth Library is working on its new long range plan. The plan will guide us and establish the library’s priorities for the next five years. We are seeking community input, starting with this brief survey. It should take you about 8 minutes to complete. Please help us out and share your thoughts! Thank you.

Wadsworth Library Building Up for the Future

Wadsworth Library is launching a capital campaign as we prepare to Build Up for the Future. This project will add a second floor in the 1996 addition to the library. This will become the children’s library, roughly tripling the space available for Children’s Services. The total cost of the project, including new furnishings, will be about $1.5 million. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and a NY State Library Construction Aid grant, we only need to raise $442,000. Anyone interested in donating can contribute directly to the Wadsworth Library Children’s Building Fund, which is managed by the Rochester Area Community Foundation, or Friends of Wadsworth Library’s GoFundMe page, or by making a check out directly to Wadsworth Library.
