I have loved this library for the past 5 years I've lived here. This is year 4 with the summer reading program and I must say it's the best thus far. Denise is great as well as all the staff there.

The variety and presentation were good. The children's programs I feel are aimed more toward perfect children. We are trying to do structured group times for son with autism with his speech therapist and is hard to do when parents and staff are not understanding. Maybe in the future you may consider a more relaxed class for children with ASD/SPD. There truly is a need. The aid in the toddler time however seems to be very sociable/helpful with ALL the kids.

With 5 children, I try to do everything as efficiently as possible. In the case of our library trips, however, I pass 3 other libraries just to get to the SC Li...brary because my kids overwhelmingly prefer it. The children’s programs are always well done and they especially love Miss Teresa, who knows them by name and seems so happy to see them every time. Thank you for all the hard work being poured into the children! See More

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.
