Meeting space is limited. Priority is given to library programs and our community non-profit partners on a first request, first served basis. Programs should be free and open to the public. To inquire about meeting room space, call the library at 797-8510, Monday through Thursday or Saturday 9-5 and ask to speak to the Assistant Director. We prefer at least one week's notice. Events should be scheduled to end 1/2 hour before library closing time. Those attending events in the meeting room should park behind the library off Walnut Street in the library lot or the city lot behind it and enter through the Walnut Street doors.

Audio Book and E Reader Devices

The Christmas shopping season is in full gear and we just wanted to put out a reminder to those patrons who are considering purchasing devices to access our downloadable material on WV Deli. Not all devices are compatible. There is a link to a list of compatible and incompatible devices on the WV Deli website which can be reached from our home page. I have also linked the list from the title of this post. Not only are the compatible devices listed, but the list price of each is given as well as specifications, compatible formats, and links to the web pages of the device. Although not every device that is compatible is listed, it gives a good overview of what is available and the features of each device.
