Wellsville prides itself on being a safe, family-oriented community.
There are several very active cultural groups, including the Genesee
Valley Chorus, founded in 1976; the Wellsville Performing Arts
Orchestra, a legacy of Wellsville
Central School's fine
string music program; the Players, an amateur theatrical group that has
entertained with a strong repertoire of drama, comedy, and musicals for
more than five decades. Wellsville High School showcases its students'
talents with an annual musical that involves dozens of area performers,
including those who play in the pit orchestra.
Many of the cultural groups use the 360-seat Howe Auditorium located in
the David A. Howe Public Library, or the 800-seat auditorium at the
Wellsville High School. The Exhibition Room at the Library is a focal
point for other community events, including the Seven-County Art Show
and the Wellsville Performing Arts Association's Member Show. The
Monday Club room is frequently used for community meetings and small
lectures, and the local history room offers references for historical
and genealogical research.
The library has more than 60,000 volumes for adults augmented by audio
and videotapes, including books on tape for the visually impaired. The
Children's Suite located in one wing of the library, has more than
20,000 volumes. The library has more than 10,000 cardholders and
circulates some 150,000 items annually.
