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.

Thanks to all who donated, volunteered, and supported our most recent book sale April 11-12! We raised almost $2300 to benefit the library and promote literacy in our area. Mark your calendars now for the next book sale: set-up will be Thursday, October 16 and the sale will be Friday and Saturday October 17-18 from 9:00-5:00. We would love to have new volunteers with fresh ideas and energy to help us with future activities.
