Wyocena is a small village with a population of 768 (2010 census), located just 30 miles north of Madison and 9 miles southeast of Portage.  Wyocena has village parks and a county park, creeks and a lake.  Easy access is gained to the interstate to larger area cities.  Several employers are in the village, but many residents commute into Madison or surrounding communities.

The Wyocena Public Library is housed in the Wyocena Community Center building.  The library began as a gift bequeathed to the village by Olieve Huggett Hiller.  The well-equipped facilities are a beautiful gem.  The Library staff provides many activities and services.  A very active Friends of the Library group assists the library.

The Village of Wyocena is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
