Friends of Wolcott Library

The Friends of the Wolcott Public Library are a great asset to the library and the community. We would not be able to offer many of the programs and services that we do, nor would we have many of the materials we are able to provide if not for the Friends.

Murals

The Friends commissioned three murals that depict historic landmarks, the history of Wolcott, and the State of Connecticut in the downstairs meeting room as well as the mural in entrance to the children’s room.  Murals were painted by Wolcott resident, Deborah Weik.
