Looking for Volunteers:

The Friends of the Williamsburg Public Library will be holding their semi-annual book sale on Friday, April 24 and Saturday, April 25. Volunteers are needed for:

  • Setup on Thursday, April 23 at 3:00pm
  • Teardown on Saturday, April 25 at 12:30pm
  • Help with the sale between 12:00pm – 5:00pm on Friday

If you can help, please call the library (668-1195) and speak with a librarian.


The Book Sale is the main fundraiser for the Friends and the funds are used to support the Summer Reading Program and other library activities and programs that happen throughout the year. Thank you for your help.


Exciting update to Zinio, Digital Magazines:

The library's Zinio Collection just got better! Through forming a consortium with area libraries, the Williamsburg Public Library is now able to offer 120 digital magazines to our patrons.


The Zinio platform provides patrons with full digital copies of your favorite magazines that can be viewed on your computer or mobile device. The best part is that these magazines can be read by everyone at once and there is no due date!


Both previous and new Zinio users will have to do a one-time registration with your library card barcode and patron information.
