On January 29, 1940 a public meeting of citizens of Westfield was held to discuss the possibility of providing the town with a library. A representative of the State Library who was present suggested a motion be made to organize a public library association. This was done, trustees were nominated and elected. Rooms were rented in the Odd Fellows Hall .
In 1946 it was decided to buy a permanent site. By 1949 enough money had been raised for a down payment of $ 3,000. The balance was loaned by a member of the community. The library was incorporated as a non-profit organization in June of that year. Through the years the library has undergone extensive interior and exterior remodeling. The latest project was completed in 2001 when a new children's room was built on.
