The Library reserves meeting rooms on a first-come, first-served basis, as scheduling permits. The right of a group to meet in the public library does not constitute an endorsement of the group’s policies or beliefs by the Wamego Public Library. WPL activities and services take precedence over scheduling of meeting rooms for other groups.

Wamego Public Library now has a Free Public Notary.
Why are documents notarized?
- The increase public trust in transactions and to deter fraud. As an impractical witness, the Notary ensures that the signers of of documents are who they say they are. The Notary also makes sure that signers have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly. In a society in which business dealing between strangers are the norm, Notaries create a trustworthy environment where people can share important documents with full confidence in their authenticity.
