Washington Free Public library believes in the freedom to read and learn, and the freedom to compare and express ideas. WFPL strives to provide educational, cultural and social enrichment for all residents of the city of Washington and surrounding areas. The Washington Public Library was established in Washington, Iowa in 1877 by a group of dedicated volunteers. Today the library enjoys increased use in many forms. We moved into our current site at 115 W. Washington St. in downtown Washington in 2009 and became LEED certified in 2011. The library continues to expand in various ways including our Spanish language collection, extended programming for all ages, and continuing pursuit of technological advances in circulation, materials, and information access. Our goal is to continue to serve the area of Washington County well into the future!
