Super 8 Photos

The West Virginia Film Office has notified us that they have added photos of the opening of the movie Super 8 to their website at They now have photos from the red carpet screening on June 9 at Ft. Steuben Mall and the Celebr8 Weirton Summer Kick-off street fair on June 5 as well as photos from the filming and transformation of the town last fall.

Library Schedule Changes

Just a reminder - The library will be closed Monday, June 20th in honor of West Virginia Day.

Beginning this week, the library will be observing Summer Hours which are Monday through Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This schedule will continue until Labor Day.

If you cannot get to the library before it closes, books may be returned through the book drop located on the Sarah Lane side of the library. Books returned through the book drop are credited with being returned on the day they are dropped off, even if they are returned after hours. All items in the book drop are checked in every morning before the library opens.  Most days the book drop is emptied a second time in the late afternoon. If you have put your items in a bag, please take them out of the bag before feeding them into the book drop since multiple items wrapped together can jam the opening.

If your materials are not overdue and have not already been renewed, they may be renewed online through the MY ACCOUNT section of the online catalog. Video, DVD and Deposit materials may only be renewed once, but books may be renewed several times. However, once you have multiple items overdue, or the item has been overdue for a period of time, the computer system will block you from renewing those items. In that case, you may call the library during open hours to renew. You will still have a fine for the time from the due date until you renew the item, but once the item is renewed, the fine will stop accumulating for the two weeks of the renewal period.
