The Parkersburg and Wood County Public Libraries will reopen with limited services on Monday, June 1st.  There is a lot of information regarding these services, so we’ve pulled it all together. Our goal is to make visiting the library as seamless as possible.  These guidelines are based on guidance from the Governor Justice’s West Virginia Strong- The Comeback Plan, and recommendations from the CDC.

  • Emerson (Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm, closed Saturday and Sunday). Limit of 45 patrons at a time.  Young Reader’s Room is limited to one family or 5 people at a time.  Enter through parking lot entrance.
  • South Parkersburg Library (Monday – Friday 10am – 5:30pm, closed Saturday and Sunday). Limit of 10 patrons at a time.  Enter through front door.  Exit to the patio.
  • Williamstown Library (Monday – Friday 11am – 5:30pm, closed Saturday and Sunday). Limit of 5 patrons at a time.  Enter from front of building facing the street.  Exit to the parking lot.

Due to different circumstances at each library, services may vary slightly. We ask for your flexibility and patience.  Further information about what will and won’t be offered is provided here.
