Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library

Connecting Community – Broadening Horizons

Closing Reminder

The Emerson Library will be closed August 6th -13th – to prepare for our upcoming renovations.

Our branches at South Parkersburg, Waverly and Williamstown will remain open.

We ask that you not return materials the week we are closed.  Do not worry about overdues during that time period, since we will not be issuing those notices for a couple weeks.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this process!

Civil Service Testing Site Change

Due to construction, the Library will no longer be a test site for the state civil service examinations.

The WV Division of Personnel has announced that the new testing location will be at WVU-Parkersburg in the Workforce Development Building on 300 Campus Drive in Parkersburg, WV.

Testing days and times will remain the same as before (Thursday mornings at 10 a.m.)

For further information, please contact the Division of Personnel at 304-558-3950.

Welcome to New Website!

Welcome to our new website.  We may have to tweak it a little over the next week, but hopefully things will be better.
