Library Expansion Project

It is an exciting time here at the Wellman-Scofield Public Library! We have received the official okay from the city of Wellman to take over the space on the East end of our building, formerly the Senior Dining Center. This addition will nearly double our current square footage and give us space for some much-needed improvements! We are working with an architect to design our expanded space, adding: a programming room, more shelf space, a teen lounge, a study room, and lots more!

We are currently in the fundraising stage and would love your support!

When you support the Wellman-Scofield Public Library, you help to sustain and grow your local library as a place that is accessible and welcoming to all, where individuals and groups can learn and grow, make connections, find inspiration and explore possibilities.

Make a Financial Gift

You can give a little or a lot, and in a variety of ways. Whatever and however you give, your support makes a real difference in the lives of individuals and our community.

Through the generosity of our donors, the Wellman-Scofield Public Library plans to expand our current library to nearly twice the current size. Your gift helps us create a space for children to learn to read, to help teenagers succeed in school, to help adults prepare for and secure new jobs, and for our community to continue to grow and to thrive.

Dino Adventure Fun!

With over 950 people in attendance, our Dino Adventure was a blast! We had games, a fossil dig, a maze, a virtual reality room, big dinosaurs, and more for everyone to enjoy. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to make this event a success, especially our volunteers who made this possible. We were able to raise $1500 towards our library expansion.


We had a fantastic turnout for our first big fundraiser! We had almost 20 trivia teams attend the event and our silent auction was also a huge success. We are happy to report that we raised almost $3,500! We are so thankful to our community for supporting this event!

Here is a little sneak peek of what originally was suggested for the new library space. We are working with an architect to further customize the floor plan.
