West Pointsett Memorial Library

West 2nd And Washington Street
Weiner, AR 72479


Through the efforts of the late Mayor Franklin Huber and with community cooperation, a beautiful library was built in 1968. The library was built on a small memorial park owned by the Friendly Garden Club, which presented the park to the city for the library.

When the library was first started it was housed in the northwest corner of City Hall (now Weiner's Fire Department). Gladys Downing Lawson was the first librarian and remained librarian until February of 1981. Edith Leach was librarian after Mrs. Lawson and remained such until March of 1986.

It is believed that the library was named a memorial library in honor of Mr. Franklin Huber, the individual mainly responsible for its beginning.

The library was remodeled in 1998 and new carpet and tile was installed in January 2004
