Friends of the Library Group 

West Perth Public Library has an active Friends of the Library group.  The group works hard to enhance the image of the library in the community.  They participate in fundraising projects and always welcome new members.  For more information, please contact the library.

PCIN

The Perth County Information Network (PCIN) is a computerized library network that enables the residents of Perth County to have access to the resources of all of the participating libraries.
 
In 1997, the Chief Executive Officers of Perth County's libraries began discussing ways of sharing services in order to achieve economies of scale, especially in the area of book purchasing. Within two years these discussions had expanded and reached fruition, and the founding members of PCIN signed contracts to proceed with the implementation of a system that would create a "virtual" library network in Perth County, provide a common library automation system for all of the participating libraries and allow patrons of each of the libraries access to the Internet.
 
The founding members are:
Perth East Public Library (Milverton)
West Perth Public Library (Mitchell)
Stratford Public Library  
The Stratford-Perth Archives joined the network on January 2002.
St. Marys Public Library joined the network in March 2010.
North Perth Public Library joined the network in May 2013.
