Mission Statement

The mission of the Whiting Public Library is to provide all citizens of the community with library services of the highest quality, to meet ever-changing needs for educational, cultural and recreational information and to promote literacy and to foster a love of life-long learning.

Who We Are

The library was dedicated in 1906 through the generous support of Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. The library’s additions were added in 1982 and then again in 2000. The Whiting Public Library proudly serves the citizens of the city of Whiting as an independent library system.  The Library provides services at no charge to all residents living within the city of Whiting. In addition, we are part of a reciprocal agreement with libraries throughout the state of Indiana.  

Our friendly and professional staff are eager to serve you.  Welcome to the Whiting Public Library!  Your library card is a passport to a world of free informational, educational and recreational media.  For information on how taxes and other public dollars are spent by the library, visit the Indiana Gateway.
