Pendleton Co. Public Library has opened their WiFi, making it available for public use without a password.  WiFi is available in the rear parking lot and in front of the library, using "PCPL".

Wireless service is hosted on the State Library Network (SLN).  This network is supported with State and Federal funds, which requires filtering and monitoring.  Misuse of this wireless service may lead to disciplinary action and/or prosecution.  Please continue to use social distancing while using this service.


To further assist our patrons, we will place a bookshelf on the front porch with a selection of books that  may be taken.  We will restock as needed as long as we have a supply of used or donated books.

We have been and will continue to clean and disinfect all books when they are returned with Clorox wipes.  Starting March 18, 2020 all books will be quarantined for 24 hours before shelving.

All fines will be waived until further notice.

 Pendleton County Library

 Working with

 Pendleton County Board of Education




It is a 60 volume set of books beginning with the children's classic The Little Engine That Could. Each month a new book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home. Best of all it is a FREE GIFT! There is no cost or obligation to your family.


Preschool children ages birth to five who are residents of Pendleton County.


1. Be a legal resident of Pendleton County

2. Submit an official registration form, completely filled out by parent or guardian. (Form must be approved and on file with Pendleton County Library.)

3. Notify Pendleton County Library any time your address changes. If the child's address changes, you must contact the Library or WV Department of Education and the Arts (304-558-2440) in order to continue receiving books.


Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of Pendleton County.
