The new year will bring a new children's area to the library! A big thank you to Sacred Heart's Children Center for their grant to buy some much needed little tyke sized furniture. We also got a colorful rug to make playing on the floor less yucky. A patron donated a fun child-size table toy that even the adults have been caught using. Come check us out...the furniture is due to arrive soon.
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 as well as an upstairs computer and printer for studying or working in a quiet space. 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, a monthly book discussion group, children's programming, and more. Click here to access our calendar
