About the library

The Verona Public Library welcomes you to enjoy our collection of over 115,000 items including books, videos, music, games, and more. We offer a wide variety of special events for all ages throughout the year, free fast wifi, private study and meeting rooms, and a skilled and friendly staff. Visit our calendar for upcoming regular and special events.

In 2006, the library moved to its current building, designed by Dimension IV. View the full history of the library here.

The Verona Public Library is part of the South Central Library System, a cooperative network of 54 public libraries in a seven-county area that offers a shared online catalog and daily delivery service of books and materials. Library card-holders can check out and return materials to any library in the South Central Library System.
