Meeting space is limited. Priority is given to library programs and our community non-profit partners on a first request, first served basis. 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.

Imagination Library Coming to Hancock County

If you live in Hancock County and have a child under the age of five, mark your calendars for Thursday, February 25! That is the launch date for Imagination Library in Hancock County. Imagination Library is a wonderful program that Dolly Parton began to encourage the children in her home county in Tennesse to love books and read. The State of West Virginia is now making it available to the children in the Northern Panhandle. Every child that registers will receive a book in the mail each month to keep. These are quality, age approprate books selected around a theme. Each library in Hancock County will be kicking off the program with a launch event. Ours will be in our Activity Room on the lower level from 10:00 to 1:00 on the 25th. There will be stories, food, door prizes, and a special guest. Each child attending the launch and registering for the program will receive the first book on that day. Join us for a fun time! If you can't attend the event, you can still register for the Imagination Library at any of the libraries in Hancock County anytime after the 25th of February.

The Census Bureau is going to provide help for anyone who has questions about filling our their Census forms. A Questionnaire Assistance Center will be set up in the library during March and April. Look for the dates in an upcoming post.
