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.
