Did you know that we have two sets of reference books available online full text? We have over 50 books available from Gale Publishers. We have a variety of subjects but many of them concern health and education (funding college, test preparation, etc) If you go to our web page and click on GVRL Research Matters, you will see the whole list. You can also search all of the books at one time by using the search bar on the icon. The other company we have books from is Salem Press/Greyhouse Publishing. We have a much smaller collection from this company. Many of them cover social issues. The two newest titles we will soon add to this collection will be on Immigration and Drug Use and Abuse. To find this collection, you have to click on an old link at the bottom of our page called The History of the Sixties. After you put your library card number in you will see a search bar to search all the books in the collection and under it a list of the books so that they can be read individually.

Our RB Digital Resources are growing! Now not only do we have eBooks, audio books, magazines and independent films, but Acorn TV has now been added to the collection. When you sign in to Acorn TV through the library, you get free access for one week. If you have already created an account for one of the other RB digital services, you will need to use the same username and password that your created then.

We have tax forms!
Come down to Mary H. Weir Public Library to pick up your tax forms and get a head start on tax season!
While you're there, make sure to ask about MyFreeTaxes.com, a program the library offers that allows families with incomes up to $66,000 to use free H&R Block software on the internet to prepare and file their own state and federal tax returns for free.
This is offered through a collaboration of the Mary H Weir Library, the West Virginia Alliance For Sustainable Families, Weirton United Way, and H&R Block (Photo credit D. Dorsch)

If your local nonprofit organization has an event or service that you would like to publicize, the library has a new way to do that. We have recently installed monitors in the library lobby. If you would like to have an event publicized, email your information or flyer to email@example.com. The information is easier to read if it is set up horizontally or landscape and as a picture file or .jpg. PowerPoint slides can also be inserted directly into the app. Adobe files cannot be inserted into the software directly, and we currently do not have the software to transfer them into other formats. Including a logo for your nonprofit is also helpful as we have been trying to include the logos in the corner to make it easier to identify the organization holding the event. We hope to use these for many purposes including public awareness of events and services, art and history displays, televised news, and even teleconferencing in the future.
