Our Community

Find out who we are and what makes our town a great place to live.
  • Newell is a community of 887 people. A strength for the town is that it still has its own preschool thru high school. The Library is sometimes a gathering center for children after school who have nowhere else to go. The need to attract new families to the community has become a priority for the City Council.  Being user-friendly, satisfying patron needs and overall friendliness is the Library's day-to-day emphasis.
  • Newell is the home of 4 churches, a beautiful Golf Course and a large and lovely swimming pool. 
  • More than a just a place where people live, our community is unique and vibrant. This community is home to friends and neighbors, people who contribute to the excellent quality of life. But its not just the people, but also the government, the businesses, the schools, and the activities that make us a great place to live or visit. We are proud to call this our home.
