Since the beginning of the new year, we have seen a large increase in the number of people using our downloadable ebooks through WV Deli. The WV Deli is a shared collection with eight libraries currently purchasing titles for the collection. People with one of our library cards can access any of those titles as long as it is not currently checked out. At last count there were around 8,000 items in the collection in several different formats.
To encourage the use of the WV Deli collection, and to benefit the Mary H. Weir Library, the GFWC Weirton Woman's Club Literary Department is holding a raffle for a Nook. Tickets are $2 each and are available at the library. The drawing will be held April 30 at the Literary Luncheon sponsored by the Literary Department of the GFWC Weirton Woman's Club. The book being reviewed this year is Balancing Act by Martin Gottfried, a biography of Angela Lansbury.

It's National Library Week! Monday night several members of the Library Board, Literacy Council, and GFWC Weirton Woman's Club attended City Council to receive a proclaimation from Mayor Mark Harris. As we always do, we are celebrating the week by forgiving fines on returned materials to allow library customers a fresh start. We are also celebrating the week and the coming of Spring by having a drawing for a set of barbecue tools and a soft sided cooler. Any adult who comes into the building and checks out items from the library during National Library Week can enter this drawing.
