Friends of the Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library

Do you really love your library? Would you like to see the Parkersburg-Wood County Library be the best it can be? Then maybe you should look into joining the Friends of the Library. We are looking for new members who want to help us improve the local library.

The Friends currently have two books sales a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The proceeds from the book sales provide financial support to the Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library by helping to sponsor the Young Readers' Summer Program, buying new materials, furniture, and computer equipment, and supporting the WV Library Association and the Literacy Volunteers of the Mid-Ohio Valley.

For more information on the Friends of the Library please see the By-Laws, or contact the Library at 420-4587. If you would like to become a member of the Friends, please visit the Library and fill out a registration form. Annual membership dues are $2 per person and $5 for a family.

Mark your calendars now for the next book sale April 16-18. We have added evening hours for Friends members only Thursday (April 16) from 3:00 to 8:30. Friday morning (April 17) from 9:00 to 12:00 will again be for Friends members only, then the sale will be open to the public Friday afternoon from 12:00 to 4:30 and Saturday (April 18) from 9:00 to 4:30. The next Friends meeting will be Tuesday, March 24 at 7PM in the Summers Auditorium of the Emerson Avenue location.

A True Friend is the greatest of all blessings, and the one which we take least thought to acquire, - wrote La Rochefoucauld
