The architectural design of this building still amazes me every time we visit. Truly amazing craftsmanship went in to the wood work inside this building and as a library it is well designed with a friendly staff.

A visit here at David A. Howe Public Library will take you back in time with the building style, but their services are definitely up to date. Each room is dedicated to educating the public. Their collections are one of a kind, and the children's section encourages children to explore, learn and READ! This library is supported by the community... More

Visited on a genealogical excursion last summer and was not expecting such an altogether positive experience. Even if you're not interested in any of the library's resources, it'a a delightful place to visit or stroll through. Great local history resources. Very welcoming, helpful staff.

Visited the library three weeks ago and it is still as beautiful as I remember when I was a child who went there almost every day. It is simply amazing that such a small town has such a grand public library

It;s worth just talking a walk through our wonderful Library. From the cork floors to the carved wooden wall behind the checkout desk. We have Tech Labs and book clubs and movies in the auditorium.

This is a beautiful old building that brings grace and dignity to the information age. Major changes in the last decade have vastly improved the width and breadth of services available to the users of this facility. I would argue that it is the crown jewel of community treasures in Wellsville. You'll be amazed at what they can do for... More
