Today is early out for Kanawha County Schools. What could be more fun than coming to the library and seeing what we have planned for our teens? #scplwv
Denise is having one of those days! She found the book, but can YOU find Waldo when you are in the library? We also have a whole section of "I Spy" books to enjoy!
An event for fellow readers tonight in Huntington. Thanks to our colleagues for what promises to be an interesting evening.
Today is the day! Join us for this free event tonight at the Big Sandy Conference Center at 6:00 in Huntington. Best-selling author Jay Asher will be discussing... several of his works including the highly acclaimed and NYT best-selling novel “Thirteen Reasons Why”. Empire Books will also be on-site selling novels for the signing, and staff from St.Marys will be present to talk about suicide prevention. See you tonight! 😃📚
Did you know this new movie is based on a novel by R.J. Palacio? SCPL has copies of the original book and several other adaptations (see the comments below for details!) by the author and others you can check out TODAY! #scplwv
Happy WV Family Reading Week! In addition to offering books (and e-books!) you may borrow and read at home, SCPL hosts events each week that include the reading of a book; check our events calendar for details. To celebrate this special week, please join us Friday at 11:30 am to enjoy a story for "Read to Me Day!"
This is West Virginia Family Reading Week. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, children who are read to at home enjoy a substantial adva...ntage over children who are not.
Karen Goff, WVLC Executive Secretary, says, “Reading to your children not only improves academic development, but it also brings families closer together. Families that read together, grow together.”
Visit your local library and read a book together during West Virginia Family Reading Week.
This is a new Ken Burns documentary recently released by PBS. We have many print and online resources available about Vietnam and other historical events. Come see us if you want to learn more. We send another thank you to our Veterans of all eras as we celebrate Veterans Day.
SCPL is happy to be a toy drop off location for Dagger's 31st Annual Toy Run! Between now and Friday, December 8, you may leave new/unused toys in this big blue barrel in our lobby.

Questions about the Toy Run (scheduled for Saturday, December 9) may be directed to Jim Dagostine: Day (304)545-7376; Evening (304)768-2278.
Big event sponsored by our colleagues at the Cabell County Public Library. Should be an interesting evening and dialogue.
