Thank you to Sacred Heart Children's Center

Sacred HeartSacred Heart has once again provided a grant to purchase children's books for birth to age 18 for our youngest patrons.  Thank you for all the "heart" you put into your work, Sacred Heart.  And thank you for caring for our most vulnerable members. 

The Library with the Big Heart!

Our library has over 12,000 books on our shelves with new purchases every month. Videos and DVDs may also be rented for the same two week period as printed materials.  Our patrons have access to ebooks and other online materials through WV Deli.  Patrons also have access to magazines through Zinio. 

Southern Area Library has nine patron computers. The entire building is wi-fi accessible. There is also a fax machine, a printer, and a copier for patron use.

We offer a private reading room with wi-fi access.  We also have a genealogy room upstairs with local memorabilia and local historical writings and information. 

Numerous programs are offered throughout the year including a monthly genealogy meeting, tutoring, children's programming, and more.  Click here to access our calendar
