Donate to WVPL

November, 2021

Dear WVPL Partner,

I have a story to tell you.  Nancy Eberwine stopped to tell one of our children’s librarians, Ms. Michelle, the impact that reading had on her son, Ryan.  She said she used to bring her son to story times every week and they checked out a lot of books.  Ryan became a lifelong reader.  He grew up to become a molecular cell biologist and Nancy attributes his success to his love of reading. She couldn’t be more proud of him, and neither could we.

Thanks to donors like you, hundreds of children develop a love of reading every year.  You provide the books and eBooks that are so well loved as well as the programs that educate and inspire them.  It makes us so happy to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they listen to a story and sing a song.  It feels so amazing to have in-person programming back now.      

With your continued support we can help provide hundreds more with a love of reading that will last a lifetime.  You have the chance to make our community better by helping to educate children. Won’t you donate?  Mail your gift, bring it to the library, or click the DONATE button above.  Thank you.  

And finally, please come and visit your library.  Both branches have expanded their hours: Monday thru Thursday 10 AM-8 PM and Friday and Saturday 10 AM-5 PM. 

With sincere appreciation,

Anne Frank, Library Director
