Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library

Connecting Community – Broadening Horizons

Veteran’s Day Closing 11/11

All Parkersburg and Wood County Public Libraries will be closed on Wednesday, November 11th to observe Veterans Day. We will re-open for business on Thursday, November 12th at the usual scheduled time. We thank all Wood County veterans for their service.

Catalog Down for System Upgrade 11/11

While we are closed for Veterans Day, our computer system will be getting an upgrade. The catalog will be unavailable Wednesday, November 11th. You will not be able to renew materials, conduct searches, place holds, or manage your account on this day. Streaming media and e-books might also be affected. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve our service.

If there are problems with authentication and you would like to use an e-book or audiobook that you have already downloaded, you can get around authentication by turning off your WiFi and data while you are using your reading app (OverDrive, Libby, or Hoopla). New materials and accounts may not be available until system service is restored.
