Located next to City Hall, Wellman-Scofield Public Library serves Wellman and the surrounding communities, including communities in Washington, Iowa, Keokuk, and Johnson Counties. We welcome visitors from all over to come and join us at the library. We offer a variety of programs and love serving our community. Our mission is to provide access to information, community resources, and services. We work to provide opportunities for education exploration for all ages in a comfortable and welcoming space.

Big Changes are Coming!

Later this Spring, we will be packing up the library and heading to our temporary location in downtown Wellman. We will share more details as we get them!

Exciting news!

We’re expanding! Thanks to a grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation and support from the City of Wellman, the library will be able to expand to more than double its current size, add a program room, a study room, and more! Check out more about our Library Expansion Project here!

Our Children’s area has great books, a coloring center, kids’ computers, games, activity bags, and more! Come check it out!
