Please direct any questions or comments about the board meeting minutes archive to the current board meeting minutes archive curator- information can be found on the contact page of this website.

The West Lafayette Public Library was founded in 1921 by the League of Women Voters. As stated in the founding document, a copy of which exists in the board meeting minutes books, the library was created based on an interest of a large number of citizens in West Lafayette.

For over 80 years the library has continued to serve the needs of West Lafayette community members, Purdue students, and others.

Currently, the library is located on the corner of Chauncey and Columbia Street in Chauncey Village in downtown West Lafayette. The library building project includes a new parking garage to make parking and access easy for library patrons.

For more information on the public library, its operating hours and collections, please visit the library website.
