Discover the beautiful towns of Westerly, RI and Stonington, CT.

In this time of uncertainty and out of an abundance of caution, Westerly Library and Wilcox Park has decided to cancel all public programs, events, and outside meetings until at least March 31, 2020. Thank you in advance for your understanding.


An eighteen-member Board of Trustees governs the Association. Fifteen of the Trustees are selected from the roster of Incorporators. In addition, there are three ex-officio Trustees: a member of the Westerly Town Council, a member of the Stonington Board of Selectmen, the President of the Friends of the Westerly Public Library and Wilcox Park. Today there are over 250 Incorporators of the Memorial and Library Association. New Incorporators are proposed by the Nominating Committee and elected at the annual meeting in September.
