New Website for a Local Library.
Walpole Public Library opened in 1876 and is a a Popular Materials Center, giving residents access to a broad selection of reading materials and the resources to pursue their interests and hobbies. The library offers resources for developing employment skills, researching consumer health and financial information, and helping students work on school projects to help citizens’ official and informal educational endeavors as an Independent Learning Center. The library is also a flourishing community area where locals congregate to socialize, study, hold formal meetings, and exchange experiences and ideas. Their mission is to “bring people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and strengthen our community.”
Given all that Walpole Public Library has to offer to Walpole residents, it was time for their website to work as a tool in furthering their work. With their new website, it is easier than ever for residents to get involved, access their favorite resources and learn about new resources and library events.

Tips for Creating an Engaging Library Website.
See library hours
Active Hours Display.
Searching to find opening hours can be tedious. On this site, we prioritize the ability to easily know if Walpole Public Library is open or closed right within the banner. Look no further than the top of the website to know if you can check out a book and avoid receiving unnecessary calls asking about library hours. This is an example of an element that will help make your website the best possible library website.
