        History of the Library:
        The Wells Library began in the basement of City Hall in November 1976 with 500 books. In 1989, a Library Foundation was organized to look into the possibility of relocating the library to a larger building. Within one year, $120,000 was raised from private donations. Along with a state grant and funding from the City of Wells, a building was purchased and renovated. In January 1990, the books from the old site were moved to the new site via a human chain.

        Snoopy Book Program:
        The Snoopy Book Program, sponsored by Peoples State Bank, has been ongoing since 1977. Children put their name into a drawing and one name is drawn each week.  The winner is given a free hardcover book!
