About the Library

West Slope Community Library

West Slope Community Library was founded in 1950 by the Century Club for Women. First located in space donated by a local bank, in 1974 the library moved to a park district building in front of Raleigh Park Elementary School in West Slope. In 1978 voters approved a levy for WCCLS which included funds for a 3,000 square foot modular building and the library to be administrated by Washington County. Since 1998 the library has added an additional 3,000 square feet. The library provides adult and children's materials, services and programs. Call for details.
