Welcome to the Wakefield Library

The library will be closed for SOL Testing from May 23 – 25th;
May 31- June 2.

 School libraries transform lives and strengthen communities.  Unfortunately, in recent months, there has been a dramatic rise in widespread efforts to censor books and information.  Virginia has been subject to these censorship efforts.  We want you to be aware of these challenged books and stand up to censorship.

Visit our library to read, study, play chess, color, or just connect with friends.
