You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child. -Dr. Seuss

On March 2nd, join us, along with the National Education Association, as we celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Day. It is a day to commemorate the gift of reading and to encourage children all across America to pick up a book and read.

Tech Time

Tech Time is a free service we offer for you to schedule an one hour appointment with our tech librarian for help with technological issues.  To schedule an appointment, just come in or call with your name, phone number, and what you want help with!  We can’t always guarantee success or a solution, but our tech librarian will do their best to help however they can!

Appointments must be scheduled a week in advance so that our librarian has time to research and prepare for your specific issue. Appointments are available Mondays and Wednesdays at 2 or 3 P.M.

Start off the new year by learning some new skills, having new adventures, or starting a new hobby. We offer books on anything from knitting to antique collecting to card making. Check out our catalog to see what is available, and check the side bar below to see our new arrivals.

WPL’s Digital Archive


The Wamego Public Library has established the Digital Archive to allow anyone with internet access to digitally search newpapers from Wamego and surrounding areas thanks to the generous donations of the Bill Baxter Memorial Fund and the Joan Bradford Memorial Fund.

Access the Digital Archive.

Before getting started, visit the Help Page for instructions on searching and using tools.

You can also find a link to the digital archive from our website menu tab “Using Your Library” and then “Genealogy”

Currently, not all publications are available online. Keep an eye on this site as the archive grows substantially with additional papers added. Our goal is to digitize our entire microfilm collection so that it will be available to digital researchers around the world!

If you would like to support this ongoing project, please contact the Wamego Public Library at (785) 456-9181 or Converting one reel of microfilm to digital format costs approximately $90.
