Events at the Library

Since 1934, the Waynesboro – Wayne County Library has been a center of activity in the community hosting several events, ranging from those sponsored by groups locally in our area to welcoming special guests such as authors and presenters throughout the state. The mission of the Waynesboro-Wayne County Library is to provide and promote open access to the resources and services of the library in order to meet the informational, educational, and cultural needs of the community. The library seeks to encourage reading and the use of current technology for life-long learning, to provide educational programs, and to collect and preserve the history of Wayne County, Mississippi.

To host such events, the library has a large meeting room that has been used for events as large as graduations. The library also has a smaller meeting room to accommodate smaller groups of fifteen to twenty people. If you are looking for a quieter place to study or for an area where a very small group of three to five can discuss a team project, our library provides a small study room perfectly suited for such occasions.
