Wadsworth Knows How. Building community resourcefulness, resilience, and hope.

An initiative of the Wadsworth Public Library, in partnership with the City of Wadsworth, the Wadsworth City School District and the Wadsworth Area Chamber of Commerce.

Wadsworth Knows How in an initiative to build capacity and deploy additional community support and mutual aid in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to incubate projects that cultivate community resilience, resourcefulness and hope.

Current Projects

Mentor Next-Door

We're working with professionals, experts and craftspeople who live and/or base their businesses in the Wadsworth Community to produce informational videos on a variety of topics to help you adapt to conditions in this rapidly changing, unprecidented era. Topics will be posted in advance and you will have an opportunity to submit your questions.


Community Gardening

While American farmers, food processors, grocers, and restaurants continue to keep our food supply growing and flowing, our community is coming together to empower people in need to grow their own food, right here in Wadsworth. 

Now accepting applications for garden plots at the Bird Park Community Garden.

Library of Things

As our economy begins to recover, Wadsworth Public Library will be here to support community members as they get back to work. We are now welcoming donations of household and yard maintenance tools and equipment in good working order for a Library of Things. 

Do you have tools or equipment you can share with your neighbors through our Library of Things? 


Resource Hub

Each day, the resources available to Americans in need continue to change at lightning speed, from both governmental and non-profit sources. Wadsworth Public Library is your up-to-date source for information about the wide range of resources available to those in need, from community-based up to Federal and international relief programs.



Past Projects

Grapevine of Hope

In times of need, it's our bonds with family, friends, neighbors, faith community and more that help to keep us going, reminding us that we stand together when the going gets tough. Grapevine Of Hope was a combined social media and outreach campaign that engaged community members to create inspirational videos and other content to encourage friends, family and neighbors to reach out and connect, responsive human voice to responsive human voice, in the fight against isolation and alienation. The project culminated in a Senior Citizen Car Parade with over 80 decorated vehicles parading by all assisted living facilities and most neighborhoods in our community.
