“We are a nation of communities… a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.” — George H.W. Bush
The Library will be open today December 5th. We thought about closing in this time of mourning for the nation, but we decided that it was best to respect our past President Bush by being a public space to come and mourn as a community and maybe do some research into the life and times of our 41st President.

VIDEO GAMES ARE HERE!
Feel like driving around in a Mario Kart? Or maybe you’d rather explore post-nuclear West Virginia, or live life as an outlaw in the Old West?
Whatever you choose, we now have a collection of video games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
Video games circulate for one week. You can check out up to two (2) per card. Like any of our other items, you can place them on hold if something is checked out, or if you’d like to pick it up from one of our branches.
You can browse our collection of video games at the main branch on Emerson Avenue. They’re located close to the DVD’s.
