A New Library for Craigsville
Saturday, April 10, 1976 in Craigsville was a "dream come true" for Whispering Pines Garden Club members and citizens of Craigsville as ground was officially broken for the community's new public library building. The project was aided by the West Virginia Library Commission's agreement to provide a mini library and businesses and individuals donating the funds needed for land purchase, construction cost, equipment purchases, etc.
July, 1981 Governor Jay Rockefeller was the guest speaker Sunday afternoon at the dedication of the Craigsville Public Library connecting shell. Approximately 100 persons attended the dedication, the ribbon-cutting ceremonies, the reception and open house afterwards. Governor Rockefeller expressed his support to all the Board of Trustee members, the local support, and the Nicholas County Commission for all of their real hard work. "This is not a big building in size but in terms of educational impact, it is enormous." he said.
When the 90's came, the need for a place to have college satellite classes, tele-conferences, organizational meetings, and a place for public meetings. Nancy Chapman, the present librarian started checking into ways to get some federal monies for such a project. After lots of hard work the project was underway. In January 1997, the new addition, 20'x40' was opened to the public. Services now available at the library include Free Notary, Copies, FAX, and 5 computers complete with free internet service.
