Do you really love your library? Would you like to see the Parkersburg and Wood
County Public 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 and promote literacy in the area.
The next meeting will be on Tuesday, November 27th at 5:30pm in the Library Board Room at the Emerson Library location. We will be discussing our by-laws, rules for book donations for our next book sale in the spring and other items as needed.
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 (attached), check out our Friends of the
Parkersburg-Wood County Library Facebook page, email us at email@example.com,
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 at the circulation desk. Annual membership dues
are $2 per person and $5 for a family. We are now offering a lifetime membership
for $20 per individual contributor.
