Warrenton Community Library

Warrenton Community Library is managed by the City of Warrenton and established its roots in the former Hammond Town Hall Building in the 1990s, moving to the current location at 160 S. Main Avenue in downtown Warrenton in April of 2017.  


Serving the Warrenton Area through traditional and innovative services, Warrenton Community Library enhances the quality of life for patrons through literacy and life-long learning while connecting people to their community and world.
A democratic and informed society must have free, equal, and open access to information.
We empower citizens to improve their lives, their governments and their communities.
